In this latest update, the Meta-owned platform has added a new feature that lets you add and edit contacts without leaving the app. At present this feature has been released only to some select beta users installing the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android.
According to the leading WhatsApp news Source WABetaInfo, this feature is going to make the users’ experience even better and easier than before as it helps to save a lot of time. To know more about this feature, go through this article.
Ability to Manage Contacts within the App
The platform already had a shortcut that lets users add contact details in WhatsApp. But as you all must be knowing that this feature would redirect you to your device’s contacts app. With this current beta update now you won’t have to leave the app for adding any new contact.
You can add these new contacts either directly to your contacts list or even to your Google account. And you get this ability straight from within your WhatsApp. Although WhatsApp had earlier released a feature with which you can add or edit your contact information.
The new Manage Contacts within the app feature
The WhatsApp news portal has also released a screenshot of the feature. In the image, you can see that the ability to Manage Contacts within the app feature allows you to add new contacts directly from within WhatsApp.
So you no more have to switch between apps. This feature even helps you to save valuable time as you can add or edit contacts in just a few seconds. According to the report, it is also helpful as you won’t lose focus on your current WhatsApp activity.
As mentioned earlier the ability to Manage Contacts within the App feature is currently available to a few select beta testers that install the latest 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, and 126.96.36.199 beta versions of WhatsApp for Android. However, the company will be rolling it out to more people over the coming days.
To check if this feature is already available to your account just open your contact list within WhatsApp and select the ‘New Contact’ option. If it is available, a new section that lets you add contacts will immediately appear.
