SECURITY CODES AND NOTICE

WhatsApp is updating their localizations about end-to-end encryption, including status updates (note: status updates were already end-to-end encrypted!):

The same change was introduced in Security Settings:

NEW PRIVACY POLICY

As announced in the previous WhatsApp beta for Android 2.20.197.4, WhatsApp is planning to update the Privacy Policy for Brazilian users, including (probably) something about Payments, that were enabled and immediately disabled (due to issues with the country):

When the new Privacy Policy will be available, WhatsApp is going to show this banner, so the user can immediately read the new notice.

MULTI WALLPAPERS

WhatsApp is currently working on a new feature that allows to use different wallpapers in different chats! You can also choose a different wallpaper when you switch the system theme. This is an exclusive screenshot of the feature enabled in a future build:

As you can see in this screenshot, you will be also able to adjust the brightness of your selected wallpaper.
This is a big move from WhatsApp, that never allowed to customize specific chats. We hope to see more similar features in future, for example the possibility to choose different auto-download settings in different chats.
