There are plenty of reasons why a person would be eager to use WhatsApp. Free instant messages and video calls, access to many groups of people, and many more features can be invoked. But perhaps the biggest advantage is the huge popularity itself of the Facebook-owned app. If all your colleagues, family members, and friends use WhatsApp, you’re practically forced to do so as well.
Others claim that the end-to-end encryption offered by WhatsApp is the best functionality of the instant messaging app, ant they might be right. The comfort of knowing that nobody will take a peek at your conversations is indeed welcoming. But WhatsApp wants to expand that comfort even further.
The new 18.104.22.168 update is coming for Android
The 22.214.171.124 update for Android users is what brings a special end-to-end encryption indicator somewhere in the call logs area of WhatsApp, according to WABetaInfo. Thus, users will be reminded that E2EE is on their side even when they engage in video calls. Nobody has the right to see what you’re discussing with another person, and the developers behind the famous instant messaging app seem to have learned that lesson very well.
The Google Play Beta program will be the one bringing the new update of WhatsApp, so you might as well be prepared! There’s no telling at this point when exactly the update will arrive. We know, instead, that it’s under development, which is still good news. Judging by how WhatsApp normally behaves when it comes to expected updates, it shouldn’t take long until the release itself. We’ll probably need to wait a few weeks in the worst-case scenario.
You can get WhatsApp from the Play Store if you haven’t done so already! Here’s how the official Android marketplace describes the app:
WhatsApp from Facebook is a FREE messaging and video calling app. It’s used by over 2B people in more than 180 countries. It’s simple, reliable, and private, so you can easily keep in touch with your friends and family. WhatsApp works across mobile and desktop even on slow connections, with no subscription fees*.
