WhatsApp just got killer upgrades – here’s everything new



WhatsApp gets lots of tweaking to make it safer and easier to use by following the changes discovered in the beta version of the messaging app by WABetaInfo.

The first change is a rather minor one that simply allows you to add contacts to your WhatsApp list by scanning a QR code, possibly avoiding the pain of contacts not being pulled properly from the phone’s contact list. The second update is more significant as it adds end-to-end encryption to WhatsApp chat backups in Apple’s iCloud.

The QR code feature generates a code for a WhatsApp user, which can then be scanned using another user’s smartphone camera by tapping a ‘scan code’ in the main app. It’s a small thing, but adding contacts to WhatsApp can be easier.

WhatsApp currently uses end-to-end encryption by default in its messages, so you’ll be forgiven for thinking that all actions taken by the Facebook-owned messaging service have the same level of security. But they don’t.
