WhatsApp Adds Two-Step Verification And Background Audio Playback To The App's Beta Version
Just few weeks after rolling out the video calling feature, WhatsApp has once again added two new features which are background playback and the two step verification.
With the new Background Audio Play back, you can now listen to voice messages in the background. What this means is that any audio message you are listening to on WhatsApp will continue to play in the background even when you switch to other conversation or App.
Also with the new two-step verification, you will be asked to provide a passcode whenever you are registering a new phone number. You will also need to provide an e-mail whenever you need to reset your passcode.
So with this new two-step verification that WhatsApp is introducing to the app, no one will be able to register your WhatsApp account using your number except they have your passcode or acess to your e-mail.
