WhatsApp is working on a new feature for Android and iOS with the help of which you will be able to login to your account with the help of Gmail ID. Currently, to open a WhatsApp account on a smartphone, a mobile number is required. But soon you will be able to open your WhatsApp account with the help of mail ID also. However, for this it will be necessary that you will first have to verify your mail ID with the account. To verify the mail ID, you will have to enter the mail ID and submit the OTP received on it. After the mail ID is verified, you will be able to open your WhatsApp account with its help also. Currently this feature has been released for some Android and iOS beta testers.
The information about this update has been shared by Wabetainfo, a website that keeps an eye on the development of WhatsApp. According to the website, WhatsApp is working on a new email address option which users will find in the settings.
