WhatsApp is always working on new features, whether they are big or small. In this article, we explain a new visual addition to come in the next updates of WhatsApp beta: indicators for end-to-end encryption.
Your chats and calls are end-to-end encrypted, so they always stay between you and the people and group you choose: not even WhatsApp and their parent company, Meta, can read or listen to them. WhatsApp wants to remember you that WhatsApp is a secure place where to talk with your friends and family, so they are planning to introduce two indicators in a future update:
As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp will add new indicators in the Status and Calls section, claiming that your status updates, personal and group calls are always end-to-end encrypted, and this will never change. WhatsApp is also planning to add the same notice in the Chats section, and a new update on WhatsApp for Android is also planned to support the same feature at a later date.
This new visual addition is not visible right now because it’s under development, and it will be rolled out in a future update.
