Meta introduces WhatsApp edit contact features

San Francisco, Meta-owned Whatsapp has introduced a new feature: “manage contacts within the app”, allowing users to add and edit contacts without leaving the app on Android.

Users can check the availability of the feature on their devices by opening the contact list within WhatsApp and selecting the “New Contact” option.

The most recent feature provided by the Meta-owned company has been made available to some beta testers via the most recent beta version.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp plans to roll out the feature to even more users in the coming days. ‘Manage contacts within the app’ is the name of the feature.

When users contact others on WhatsApp, they can add unknown numbers to their contacts list without switching to the contacts app.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is reportedly developing a new feature, which will allow users to share their status updates to Facebook stories without leaving the app.

Earlier, users could share status updates to Facebook stories, but they had to go through the extra step of manually sharing the update each time they posted something new.

With this new feature, the process may be automatic for certain status updates users choose, when the option is enabled.
