Whatsapp is known to be working on a new feature which aims to speed-up the process of logging onto the platform, reports WABetaInfo.
The feature called Flash Calls, is available on Whatsapp beta in the Android 220.127.116.11 update.
For Android users, Whatsapp will call on the entered number and end the call using the automatic verification method. It will then the last phone number in your phone logs and check if it matches the registered number.
Whatsapp claims that it would not use the accessed call history for any other purpose. Additionally, the user will have to give the applicant the consent to make and manage calls and access to your phone’s log during the verification process.
The report published also adds that ‘the phone number will be different each time which will ensure a safe experience while verifying your account’.
It must be noted that this feature will not be introduced for iOS users, as Apple does not offer access for any public API to read the call history.

According to a new feature introduced by Whatsapp, users can now choose between multiple playback speeds while playing an audio file.
