WhatsApp will soon allow using shortcuts while interacting with unsaved contacts


WhatsApp, the world’s biggest instant messaging application, has released a new version that gives users more features when selecting phone numbers in chat bubbles, according to WABetainfo.

When users choose a phone number in chat bubbles, the platform will provide a new feature that will allow them to employ shortcuts.

When a user hit a phone number in a chat bubble before, WhatsApp took them to the default dialer application.

When a user taps a phone number in any conversation bubble, the app will now provide them a variety of options.

“In this situation, the application will check if the phone number is available on WhatsApp, so if the contact has a WhatsApp account,” according to WABetainfo.

If the contact’s phone number is on WhatsApp, users will now be able to start a new conversation thread with them, according to the source.

“There is also the option to call the contact using the default dialer app, as well as the opportunity to instantly add the contact to your address book,” WABeta added. When the phone number is not on WhatsApp, these two options always appear.”

More people now have access to these new options, and more activations are planned in the future.
