These include PIP (Picture-in-Picture) mode. image), configure image quality before sharing, report status, etc. All of these features make WhatsApp one of the most comprehensive messaging platforms available today.
The Meta-owned giant is said to be working on a new feature that would allow group admins to chat directly with group participants instead of going to the group info page, and according to a report by WABetaInfo, the Meta-owned giant is working on integrating contact shortcuts into the group. The feature will be available to all WhatsApp users after installing the latest update (v23.1.75) of WhatsApp for iOS from the App Store and TestFlight for beta testers.
The feature of shortening contacts in WhatsApp
WhatsApp is rolling out this feature for group admins to quickly call or chat with group participants privately. Additionally, numbers are also highlighted when a group member joins or leaves the group, allowing admins to interact with them personally.
The feature also allows group admins to add group participants to their address book and copy their phone numbers. This feature is already effective as group managers do not need to go to the group information section to fetch contact information, and the feature will appear after tapping and holding on the phone to use new shortcuts that have the ability to manage the group to either call or chat with group participants.
