WhatsApp is releasing an update allowing iOS users to link their email addresses to their WhatsApp accounts. Users can now access their accounts with their registered phone number; adding an email address will provide another way to access WhatsApp. Email addresses will not be shown to contacts, but adding one can be handy when receiving an SMS code to log in to WhatsApp is not feasible.
WhatsApp for iOS 184.108.40.206 (via WABetaInfo) has received an update that prompts users to add their email address to their WhatsApp account. "Email helps you access your account," states a statement within the app. Others aren't able to see it." Following entering your email address, for confirmation, you will be asked to enter a verification code emailed to you.
To add your email address to your Account, ensure your iPhone runs the most recent WhatsApp version from the App Store. After you've installed the WhatsApp for iOS 220.127.116.11 update, go to the settings menu and select Account> Email address to enter your email address. Earlier this month, the capability was discovered in the app's test versions for Android and iOS.
You should be able to receive verification numbers via email after attaching an email address to your Account. This might be helpful if you cannot receive SMS codes due to network troubles or other technical difficulties. However, WhatsApp will continue to utilise your phone number as your primary identification on the app, and your email address will be used only to deliver authentication credentials in private.
There is currently no information on when the same feature will be accessible to all Android users on the stable channel. It is now available to Android beta testers, and attaching an email account works as claimed. Users on Android may expect the email address connection capability to be rolled out in the coming days by the Meta-owned messaging service.
