The 23.24.70 update for iOS is now available on the App Store, and although the official changelog doesn’t provide detailed information about the new features included, it looks like WhatsApp is widely rolling out the email verification feature.
It’s essential to note that this option doesn’t replace SMS verification but serves as an alternative. This can prove useful in scenarios where users find themselves in areas without cellular coverage, for example, and still need to log in to their WhatsApp accounts.
To add an email address to your account, navigate to the Your Profile tab, select the Account menu, and tap on Email Address. WhatsApp emphasizes that the provided email address is solely used for account access and remains invisible to other users.
Additionally, users may notice a redesigned interface featuring a new green color. In other news, just recently, WhatsApp has introduced voice chats for large groups on iOS and Android and a new privacy feature allowing users to hide their IP address.
