WhatsApp is said to be testing two-step verification on the web, as well as a chat wallpaper for voice calls.
Whatsapp is developing two new versions of the app, each with its own set of features.
WhatsApp is rumoured to be changing its app's calling experience. WhatsApp may soon deploy two new updates, one to improve security and the other to add more personalization effects.
According to WAbetainfo, WhatsApp will soon launch a new voice calling interface that will allow users to choose their own wallpapers. The desktop version of the Meta-owned messaging software is also getting a two-step authentication feature. The option to import chats from Android to iPhone was mentioned in the last beta update. Here are the new features that the upcoming WhatsApp version will include.
Two New Features Coming to WhatsApp Soon
According to WAbetainfo, WhatsApp is working on two new versions with various features. While one will increase the level of security, the other will increase the level of customization. The actual version of WhatsApp's next update is unknown.
In terms of the former, WhatsApp's desktop edition will get two-step verification. On the desktop version, users will be able to set or disable two-step verification, update their PIN, and modify their email address, as shown in the screenshot above. If you lose your phone, you can obtain a reset link to recover your PIN. This version is currently in development by WhatsApp, and it should be accessible in a future version of the app.
When users receive a call, WhatsApp is also working on modifying the wallpaper. WhatsApp now only displays the caller's profile photo rather than any customized chat wallpaper; however, this choice may be modified in future versions. This version will be available soon and will allow users to customize their calling wallpapers. In the calling interface, the customized wallpaper will be displayed.
This functionality was just discovered in the WhatsApp for iOS beta version, and we can anticipate it to arrive to Android in the near future. This feature was first noticed in December of last year, and it appears that WhatsApp is putting the finishing touches on it before releasing it to beta users.
We'll get a look at these capabilities as soon as WhatsApp begins spreading them out to beta testers.
