WhatsApp continues to receive interesting news, some visible and functional as the stickers that came last week to the beta and others as in this case, of which go knowing details before even of arriving to the application. There is a new version of the beta of WhatsApp, moving forward we structure that very soon the application will ask you email to register us. We will see all the details of this interesting novelty which should arrive in the next few days.
The two-step is closer than ever to the app. It is something that we already knew before, since a couple of months ago, behind the scenes of this new development is to identify, and now we have the certainty that this type of identification is closer than ever.
WhatsApp will ask you for the email
The new version of WhatsApp beta is the 2.16.267, and with it we have known that this new feature for the messaging application is closer than ever.
The great novelty of this version is that the identification in two steps is already a fact, although at the moment it is disabled by default. As you can see in the image, WhatsApp will alert us that without an email address we will be unable recover the account if you need it.
In this way entering the email address will send us a notification email to verify your account, this is what is known as identification in two steps.
As we say this option is disabled for the time being even in the beta, but is already fully functional, so arrival at the final version is closer to no doubt. Once again it is a feature that is present in many other applications, but which finally reach WhatsApp soon, we already know that from the messaging app things are taken at your own pace.
