Meta-owned WhatsApp is planning to roll out a new feature of end-to-end encryption at the end of the call log in its new update, WABetainfo reported.

The WhatsApp news tracker said that the messenger is working on an end-to-end encryption indicator and is planning to bring the new update through the Google Play Beta Program for the Android version 2.22.8.7.

In the new update, users will see a new footer at the bottom of their call history, indicating that the calls are end-to-end encrypted. This means that no one, neither WhatsApp nor its parent company Meta, can listen to the calls. 

WhatsApp wants to remind users that it is a secure place to talk with their friends and family.

The same footer might be introduced at the bottom of the chats list and status updates. However, there is no evidence of that as of yet.
