The work of the development team of Whatsapp aimed at improving this popular instant messaging application and in the past few hours the release of a new version has been given beta dedicated to devices based on Android: we are talking about the version 18.104.22.168.
What’s new in WhatsApp Beta version 22.214.171.124 for Android
Among the features that the developers of this messaging service are working on are also indicators for encryption end-to-end at the bottom of the call history.
This is a feature that has already appeared in the past in the beta version of the app for iOS devices and now also arrives in the one for Android, confirming the fact that it should be introduced on both mobile platforms.
Basically, there will be a new writing at the bottom of the call history reminding users that their calls are protected by encryption end-to-endso that no one, not even WhatsApp and Meta, can listen to them.
The WhatsApp team certainly plans to introduce the same writing also at the bottom of the list of chats and status updates but at the moment there is no evidence in this regard.
We look forward to finding out when this novelty will be introduced for all users through its implementation in a stable version of the application.
