THE Whatsapp released in its beta version for desktop a security update indicating which features are protected by end-to-end encryption, being text and voice messages, calls, photos, videos, documents, location and status updates.
Although it is nothing new that the messenger has this type of security, the company has decided to adopt notifications so that users understand that they are also protected when accessing the account through the browser.
In addition, the user can choose to opt-in to receive security notifications. When the option is activated, the person will always receive a message when the code changes. It is worth mentioning that those who access the account from multiple devices will need to check the box on each device to receive notifications.
THE Whatsapp now allows users to voice call in a group with more than 30 people. At first, it is important to make it clear that the novelty is part of one of the recent updates to the application for Android and iOS.
Until then, the maximum capacity for voice calls on the Whatsapp was 8 participants. Now the messenger will allow up to 32 people on a single link.
To release this new functionality, the app also changed the look of the calls to facilitate conversation between app users. First of all, it is worth remembering that the feature is available from iOS version 22.8.80 (for iPhone) and 184.108.40.206 on Android.
The company had already announced new features to facilitate the exchange of voice messages in the application, such as the option to listen to messages outside the conversation window and speed up the speed and audio.
