WhatsApp may bring two-factor authentication with its latest version 2.16.341 beta update. Once tested, the feature will be available for the public, and can be found along with the menu items Privacy, Security, and deleting your WhatsApp account.
When a user opts for Two-step verification, he will be asked a passcode when registering a phone number, and users must add an email account to be used when resetting their six-digit entry codes. Once your phone gets registered, no one can register a WhatsApp account using your number without providing the passcode or email account.
Another worth noting feature to be included is audio messages that can be played in the background. The feature enables users to easily switch to another conversation window or open a different app without pausing or stopping the audio from being played.
It’s not clear when the update will come for the WhatsApp users in general. But, once it completes the beta testing, it will be available for download on respective Play Stores.
