There are thousands of users of WhatsApp in India, who use it to stay connected with their families and friends. The company also keeps bringing new updates to improve the experience of its users. Continuing this trend, WhatsApp has introduced a new calling feature. Let's know about it.
Whatsapp working on a new feature
WhatsApp is working on a new feature, which will make it easier for users to make calls. The new calling shortcut feature will let users make calls quickly and easily using the app. The calling shortcut feature will allow users to quickly access their contact list and start calling without opening the app.
Can set a shortcut for a contact
It also lets users set custom shortcuts for frequently called contacts, so you can make calls quickly. With this new feature, WhatsApp wants to make calling as easy as sending messages on the platform.
Calling Shortcut Feature
According to a report by WABetaInfo, the integrated calling shortcut feature in the app will make it easier for users to tap a contact cell in the contact list. Once the new calling shortcut feature is created, it will be automatically added to the home screen of the user's device.
The feature will come for Android users
The update is being rolled out to Android beta testers through the Google Play Store beta program. The update will appear in version 184.108.40.206, which gives users the ability to use the calling feature from within the app. The report also states that the calling shortcuts are currently under development and will be released in future updates to the application
How will the calling feature be useful?
This feature will be helpful for those WhatsApp users who call the same person repeatedly and do not want to go through the same process every time. That means now you don't need to open the application and search for contacts every time. Apart from this, WhatsApp is working on an in-app banner feature within the app, which will allow users to browse through their documents. A new banner feature will be available to use in upcoming updates of the app.
