WhatsApp introduces new feature

Meta-owned WhatsApp is rolling out a significant update for verified channels and businesses, replacing the familiar green verification badge with a new blue checkmark.

This change, reported by WaBetaInfo, is aimed at enhancing brand consistency across Meta platforms and unifying the user experience across Facebook, Instagram, and now WhatsApp.

The feature is currently being deployed to WhatsApp Beta users on Android through the latest update, version 2.24.14.18, available on the Google Play Store. A screenshot shared by WaBetaInfo illustrates the new blue checkmark, signaling a shift towards a standardized visual identity for verified accounts.

The introduction of the blue checkmark signifies authenticity for users interacting with verified channels and businesses on WhatsApp. This visual cue is designed to reassure users that they are engaging with official accounts, thus mitigating the risks associated with impersonation and enhancing user trust.

Aligning WhatsApp’s verification badge with the blue checkmarks used on Facebook and Instagram aims to improve user recognition of verified accounts across different Meta services. This unified approach not only enhances brand recognition but also simplifies the process of identifying genuine businesses and channels across various platforms.

According to reports, this update may also be a strategic response to Meta Verified, a recent feature announced by Mark Zuckerberg. By adopting a blue checkmark, WhatsApp is aligning with broader Meta initiatives to standardise verification practices and bolster user confidence in digital interactions.

As WhatsApp continues to implement these changes, users can expect a more streamlined and secure experience when interacting with verified entities on the messaging platform.
