WhatsApp Is Working On A Feature That Enables Users To Add Or Edit Contacts Without Leaving The App

WhatsApp is one platform that continues to work on introducing more features so users can attain an easy in-app experience. And now, we’re hearing about another exciting offering where users can say goodbye to app hopping when adding contacts.

Just recently, we heard about the app launching a more repositioned navigation bar. It’s quite similar to that seen on WhatsApp for iOS users. In the same way, there is talk about one of the best-encrypted messaging platforms working on a feature where users can include or edit contacts without leaving the platform.

For a while now, we saw the app for iOS users make the most of the offering but now, it appears that Android users will be doing the same as support for it was announced today.

WABetaInfo was the first to break the news about how some users of the platform are facing a new contact UI where a person may lay down parameters seen through the default feature for Contacts. For now, it’s a very limited rollout but we should be seeing it expand to more and more people in a while.

Users can store the contact details through their device’s storage like before or their respective Google account that’s paired with this. Similarly, edits may be made to any contacts that are saved on devices like before. This includes the addition of inputs to some newer fields including birthdays or email IDs through WhatsApp directly.

For many, it looks very basic in terms of being an instant messaging app. But without such endeavors, it wouldn’t be wrong to call it out a far cry. After all, who likes to switch from one place to the next between the app and users’ contacts?

And just in case you are happy to be a little curious about the feature being live across your phone, you can simply go to your contacts list on the WhatsApp platform and click the New contact tab and wait to see if any new UI pops up.

In case you are not enrolled in the beta program for WhatsApp on an Android device, this feature would be arriving very soon so please hold on tight.

On the other hand, the WhatsApp platform seems to be busy working on new voice options for the chat in groups, in addition to adding visual alterations to the attachment menu of this app.
