WhatsApp Comes With End-To-End Encryption

New Interface Changes Has Come in WhatsApp Comes With End-to-End Encryption.

Many of the new emojis have been leaked on everyone, before a couple of weeks. After that, the official Play Store beta program has been launched and the miscellaneous things will have to update. A few interface changes have been made to the incarnations of the app between 2.12.493 and 2.12.500.

Among that changes, some of them are very important like some of them points to an important shift in WhatsApp's way of doing things.
First: Among the changes on top the changes is "Emphasis on end-to-end encryption".
In version 2.12.498, inside the chat window, you might have seen the new message that confirms that the chat is end-to-end encrypted. Since 2014, TextSecure has been used by the WhatsApp to encrypt messages and that encryption has been deployed on all platforms. Anyone don't know that why WhatsApp is actually working on being more transparent end-to-end encryption in an app, but this may be one of the reasons that encryption has been deployed on all platforms. With ourselves, we can easily spot the small message in the group chats. There is not a surety about the message pop up in individual chats, but it's 100% sure that from now your chats have been notifying by the WhatsApp to find that they are end-to-end encrypted or not. Some work is in progress still and it is not totally ready from the perspective of performing beta testing.

Second: Long messages have been collapsed
It's very difficult to go through such messages in WhatsApp which are very long again and again we have to scroll up and down which may be annoying. The Shakespearean monologue, jokes, news article and boring job memo etc may be the messages which are too long enough to even read.
This has been solved in the version 2.12.493, in that version the long messages have been truncated by the WhatsApp. Once after the displaying of the full message, the conversation will have to leave, and you will have to come back to it so it will collapse again.
 
Third: Interface changes in testing
WhatsApp developers always try to insert and delete things which have been created by them. Whatever the changes are in version 2.12.498, they are no longer in 2.12.500. version. The changes may include:
  • A new Exit group icon within a group chats.
  • The addition of starred messages item.
All these you can easily find out on version 2.12.498. We'll keep an eye out for more changes as the beta updates keep rolling.

    WhatsApp can claim they now end-to-end encrypt messages as long as they want, I don’t believe it. I’ll believe it once I can verify it myself. If they really want us to trust them, they’ll have to provide something like Threema’s Validation Logging. If they don’t, claims like this are mere marketing.

      I probably would trust WhatsApp enough to use it as my primary messaging app. however, probably be different if I was planning to overthrow a government or something like that 😉 . same approach for all others messaging app .

        What do you mean by “same approach for all others messaging app”? (I think there’s a huge difference between messaging apps like WhatsApp (and Snapchat, etc.) and Threema (and Signal, etc.), the former exploit(s) your user data while the latter protect(s) it (by end-to-end encryption).)

        BTW, don’t worry, I don’t plan to overthrow the government (but I still consider my chats to be private).
