now again, two updates have been added. They are:
2 step Authentication: Although we’ve been waiting for this to manifest and now, we
have WhatsApp 2-factor authentication. this is to improve the security features, This new features has gone live on the
latest beta version of whatsapp (2.16.341 and above, maybe even earlier).
- Audio Play back In Background: You can now play Audio messages in the background.
Previously, you had to keep WhatsApp open and stay within the conversation to
hear any voice message received in it. But now reverse is the case, you switch
to other conversation, apps etc as long as the audio message isn’t finish, it
will keep playing.
Tap it to get to a screen that explains what 2-step verification is and get the
option to enable it.
Enter a 6-digit passcode that you’ll be asked for each time
you try to register your phone number with WhatsApp, and confirm it. You’ll
also need to give an email address that’ll be used to reset your passcode
should you forget it.
Once that’s done, two-step verification will be active on
your phone number. No one will be able to activate WhatsApp with the same phone
number unless they have the passcode or access to the email account to reset
