WhatsApp introduces phone number sign-in for WhatsApp web in android beta
Delhi : WhatsApp is making a feature available to Android beta testers that allows users to sign in to WhatsApp Web using their phone number. For now, the platform only allows users to access the web-based messaging service by scanning a QR code with their smartphone. If your phone's camera isn't working properly, you can choose to sign in using your mobile number on your browser after installing the most recent testing version of WhatsApp for Android. This option may be useful. On an Android beta version of WhatsApp, the company is also creating new filters for enhanced chat sorting.
The new feature was discovered by feature tracker WABetaInfo in WhatsApp beta version 2.23.14 for Android. To access it, tap the three-dot menu in the top right corner of the screen, choose Linked devices > Link a device, and then sign in with your phone's fingerprint scanner, PIN, or password. The QR code scanner and a new choice, "Link with phone number instead," are both included on the following screen.
When the user taps the new button, a new screen appears asking them to access WhatsApp Web and select Link with phone number. You will see an 8-digit code after entering your phone number that you must enter in the WhatsApp app on your phone to finish the device connecting process.
It's important to note that the most recent WhatsApp beta for Android only permits phone number logins on the Web interface; it forbids such logins on WhatsApp Desktop or on additional mobile devices. There is no information on when WhatsApp will add this feature to its iOS app or when users in the stable update channel on Android would start receiving it.
Additionally, WABetaInfo discovered a brand-new feature that will let you filter messages with just a few taps that is currently under development. WhatsApp has added new filters including All, Unread, Personal, and Business in place of the navigation tabs that were relocated to the bottom of the chat programme. By selecting one of the four criteria, users can group different chats according to whether they have been opened or have not yet been read, and list WhatsApp Business talks.
