WhatsApp web username feature will allow users to connect without sharing phone numbers: Report

WhatsApp's latest update introduces usernames for increased privacy and an improved dark mode for web users, reflecting a commitment to enhancing user experience and security.

WhatsApp web username feature will allow users to connect without sharing phone numbers: Report

WhatsApp, a leading global messaging application, is continually evolving to enhance user experience and privacy. It's known for connecting billions worldwide, but sharing personal phone numbers has always been a concern for many users. Recent developments indicate that WhatsApp is addressing these concerns with innovative features.

Connecting on WhatsApp Without Phone Numbers

A significant breakthrough reported by WA Beta Info is the introduction of usernames on WhatsApp. This feature, expected to be available on both Android and web platforms, allows users to create usernames for their profiles. The introduction of usernames is a strategic move to enhance WhatsApp privacy.

By choosing a username, individuals can keep their phone numbers private, adding an extra layer of security. This feature also brings the convenience of changing usernames at any point.

Additionally, WhatsApp is reportedly enabling users to search and connect on WhatsApp without phone numbers. Users can find others by entering their username in the search bar, eliminating the need to know or share phone numbers. This innovation is expected to extend to both mobile and web versions of the app.

WhatsApp Dark Mode Enhancements

Another exciting development is the enhancement of the WhatsApp dark mode. WA Beta Info has reported that WhatsApp is refining the dark mode for its web version.

This involves a subtle yet significant change in the background colour, shifting from #111b20 to #12181c. This adjustment aims to reduce eye strain in low-light environments and is said to be "specifically tailored for the dark theme."

Wrap up

these anticipated features demonstrate WhatsApp's commitment to user privacy and experience. The introduction of usernames and the enhancement of the dark mode on the web platform reflect the platform's proactive approach in addressing user needs and preferences.
