WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature on their app that will make your contacts access easier. In the recent beta release, WhatsApp for Android is working for a new pop-up menu that appears once you tap a phone number available in the chat. Usually, when you tap the number, it takes you directly to the dialer but with the latest update, it will give you a choice to either dial the number or save it in your contacts.
If the phone number is active on WhatsApp, you will also be able to directly chat with the user without saving their number.
WhatsApp Beta tracker WABetaInfo reported that the new pop-up menu is rolling out to some beta testers. Here is a screenshot shared by the website:
The exact details on when this will be available for all users are still not known. WABetaInfo also informed that WhatsApp has fixed the issue of the chat button appearing wrongly in the chats list of version 188.8.131.52.
With this feature, people can easily text contacts they don’t want to save. Otherwise, each time you want to make first contact, you have to save their number on WhatsApp.
