The WhatsApp Android version 2.12.413(Beta version) is working on end to end encryption to its chats along with a Facebook Integration. End-to-end encryption (E2EE) is a system of communication where only the people communicating can read the messages.
The leaked screenshots shared by developer Javier Santos’ on his Google Plus post reveal that Whatsapp will now give the option to check that the messages exchanged are encrypted end-to-end.

According to the leaked pictures, the beta version of Whatsapp will come with an option of linking your WhatsApp account with the Facebook account “to improve your Facebook experiences.”
You will also be able to share your Whatsapp data with Facebook from the Account settings tab. By using the Whatsapp data, Facebook might target its users with adverts in a more accurate way.
