A new way to log in to your WhatsApp account.

The latest version of WhatsApp’s iOS app (23.24.70) reportedly lets you log into an account by receiving a six-digit code via email. WABetaInfo, which spotted the new feature, notes that email logins aren’t supposed to replace phone numbers, but are meant as an alternative option if your phone’s unavailable.

It’s yet another sign of WhatsApp becoming a more platform-agnostic messaging service.
