WhatsApp Beta Introduces End-to-End Encryption Indicator

The latest WhatsApp beta for Android has come with an update that adds a new feature to chat windows. The feature displays an indicator of end-to-end encryption in the form of a lock icon with the words “end-to-end encrypted” briefly appearing below the name of the contact or group.

The platform already provides detailed information on encryption standards for various features, including chats, video/voice calls, and status updates.

The new encryption indication is currently being tested in beta versions and is expected to be available in the stable version shortly. This upgrade reflects WhatsApp’s continuous commitment to user safety and privacy.
