While WhatsApp is busy in enhancing stickers on its platform by adding a dedicated search feature and the ability to create custom stickers, the instant messaging app is rumored to bring an ability to let users share their contact information via a QR code.
This sounds similar to the Nametag feature available on Instagram for some time. It is also reported that WhatsApp is in plans to bring an easier way to let users add a new contact directly from the app.
A BetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is working on a feature called “Share Contact Info via QR” that will let users share their contact details to other WhatsApp users via a QR code.
The screenshots show that users will be able to add a new contact on WhatsApp by simply scanning the QR code of that contact. Once the app detects and recognizes the QR code correctly, it will fill all the fields and then add the contact in the address book without any external efforts.
WABetaInfo claims that the component was spotted on iOS, though it will be accessible on Android in the future.
We couldn’t see its quality on any of our iOS
gadgets. In addition, the component is probably going to be valuable particularly for organizations as they’ll have the capacity to distribute their QR code straightforwardly on their sites or in their shops.
This could enable them to get installments or include their clients for future interchanges. It is important here that WhatsApp already has its committed business application for SMBs, and WhatsApp Payments are officially taking on applications such as Paytm, which likewise offers QR codes of its clients for a simple network.
Nearby the Share Contact Info by means of QR, WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is updating the usefulness to include another contact through its application on Android and iOS.
There will allegedly be a straightforward and instinctive interface that will consequently embed the nation code once you pick the nation of the new contact. Likewise, when you’ve entered the telephone number, it will demonstrate whether the new contract is as of now a WhatsApp client.
It will demonstrate a “Not on WhatsApp” name just beneath the telephone number of the contact if that isn’t on WhatsApp yet.
The new component is said to supplant the current ‘New contact’ easy route that made an approach to Android in Maya long time in the wake of being accessible on iOS.
WABetaInfo says that both new highlights aren’t accessible on Android and iOS, however, the WhatsApp group is dealing with the highlights for fourteen days. We may need to hang tight for at some point to encounter their degree through an alpha or beta arrival of WhatsApp.
