In the wake of numerous updates last year, WhatsApp is gearing up for yet another significant enhancement – the introduction of the Favourite Contacts feature. This new addition aims to streamline users’ calling experience on the app, offering quick and convenient access to preferred contacts for calls and posts.
According to a report from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp Beta for iOS is currently testing the Favourite Contacts feature, as revealed on the app’s beta tracking website. This feature allows users to designate their preferred contacts, positioning them prominently at the top of the calls tab for easy access. With this one-tap solution, users can swiftly initiate both video and audio calls with their selected contacts, enhancing the overall user experience.
While the Favourite Contacts feature is still in the testing phase, it is anticipated to be included in a future update. The exact method of creating favourite contacts is yet to be clarified, but it is speculated that users may need to long-press on a specific contact to add them to the new list. The confirmation of this process will be provided upon the official rollout of the feature on devices. Stay tuned for an improved and more efficient calling experience on WhatsApp with the upcoming Favourite Contacts feature.
