WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature that simplifies the usage of its app. With the updated version of the messenger designed for iOS devices, users can now log in using an email address, a feature that may prove useful in various situations.

This newly added function is being released to a broad range of users, with the corresponding application update marked 23.24.70.

Before this update, a phone number was essential for using WhatsApp. This aspect remains unchanged - the phone number will still be linked to the user's account, and the app's usage without it is impossible. Nevertheless, users can now connect their email address with their WhatsApp account, facilitating an alternative method for logging into the messenger.

Understanding the new WhatsApp login method

This new feature could be particularly beneficial when a user cannot utilize an SMS code, such as when they do not have their phone on hand or lack signal.

If you're missing this new WhatsApp feature, fret not. It may take several weeks for the complete worldwide rollout and availability of this feature. However, rest assured that it will be incorporated into the full version of the app and will eventually be accessible to all iPhone users.
