WhatsApp Security Center is not the only recent feature
WhatsApp Security Center is not the only feature that the users should be waiting for. Meta is working hard to add more features and improve its current systems to offer a better user experience. The company recently announced screen sharing and username features that are expected to be added to the live version soon.
The beta version 184.108.40.206 of WhatsApp for Android contains the username function, which enables users to select a memorable username to be connected with their account. The functionality may eventually allow users to locate one another by username rather than phone number. End-to-end encryption is used for all chats that are begun with a username.
Beta users of the 220.127.116.11 version of the Android app also discovered a fresh screen-sharing function. After selecting the screen-sharing option and agreeing, users could begin sharing the contents of their screens during video calls.Advertisement
