Technostation.com_ A new feature that allows users to log in to their accounts using email addresses in addition to phone numbers is being tested by WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging service used by billions of people worldwide.
The feature, which WABetaInfo discovered first, is meant to enable users to log in to their accounts in case they are unable to get the 6-digit OTP via SMS. It is not meant to replace the current SMS verification process. The “Email Verification” function is a new area under “Account Section” in the beta versions of WhatsApp for iOS and Android. This is where users can link an email address to their WhatsApp account.
When you want to trade phones but aren’t quite ready to change the SIM on the new one, or when you want to login to a new device in a place without cell network service, this is quite helpful.
With the latest build, WhatsApp is making the new email verification mechanism available to additional beta testers after testing it for several months. Although only a small number of users have access to the most recent beta version of the software, it appears that WhatsApp will soon expand to include a larger user base.
The instant messaging app owned by Meta has been adding and testing a lot of new features, including the ability to send voice notes and stickers in Channels, use several accounts on the same device, and use new forward and rewind video controls that mimic those on YouTube.
