WhatsApp is currently testing a new feature that will allow users to log in to their accounts using their email addresses. This feature is currently in development and is expected to be rolled out to all users in the near future.
WhatsApp is a popular messaging app that allows users to send and receive text messages, voice messages, images, videos, and documents. It is used by billions of people around the world to stay in touch with friends and family.
WhatsApp’s email login feature is more secure and convenient to sign-in on multiple devices
Spotted by @WABetaInfo, the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS includes support for an email login feature that would allow users to log in using their email address instead of their phone number.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, with over 2 billion active users. One of the things that makes it so popular is that it is easy to use. All users need is a phone number to get started. However, there are some limitations to using a phone number as their primary login method.
For example, if users lose their phone or SIM card, they will need to get a new one and set up their account again. This can be inconvenient, especially if users have a lot of important conversations saved on their accounts.
Another limitation is that users can only use WhatsApp on one device at a time. If users want to use it on multiple devices, they will need to use a third-party app or service, which can be unreliable and insecure.
Meta is aware of these limitations and is working on this new email login feature to solve most of these issues. This feature is currently in beta testing, but it is expected to be rolled out to all users in the coming months.
The ability to log in using email would be a major convenience for WhatsApp users, especially those who have multiple phone numbers or who travel frequently. It would also make it easier for people to use WhatsApp on devices that do not have a phone number, such as tablets and laptops.
