WhatsApp has been sending updates with new developments and features. The company is currently working on multiple features like dark mode, multiple device support and more for its Android and iOS apps.
As spotted by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp recently updated its Android app with some new features. The latest update doesn’t reveal anything major but it comes with a small UI change and gives more information on multiple device support.
However, the photo icon on WhatsApp has been replaced from the camera to an image. What was previously seen as a camera will now show a picture icon on WhatsApp. This is a minor update and may even go unnoticed by users.
WhatsApp’s latest update shares more information on the upcoming multiple device support. The company will introduce a new feature called ‘Registration Notifications’ for multiple device support.
When users try to log in their WhatsApp account on a second device they will receive a message on the original device. The message will read, “The recipient’s device list changed. Tap Verify to confirm the new security code.”
WhatsApp users can then verify the new security code and start using WhatsApp on a different device. The app company is currently allowed only one account per device. With this new feature, users will able to use the same WhatsApp account on more than one device.
It was previously reported that chats will still remain end-to-end encrypted even with multi-platform support.
While this seems like an interesting feature, users are anticipating dark mode the most. The latest updates on WhatsApp revealed dark mode is almost ready for release on Android. WhatsApp dark mode for iPhones still has some work left.
