WhatsApp is letting some users share contact cards

There are more than 2 billion users of WhatsApp worldwide, making it a well-known messaging service. The Meta-owned business is constantly adding new features to enhance the user experience on its apps. 

According to a report, the instant messaging service is currently rolling out support for sharing contact cards on the Windows beta version.

Users would be able to share contact cards within the same chat share sheet thanks to this new feature, according to a WABetaInfo report. Notably, if the user’s WhatsApp account already has this feature enabled,

Users will benefit from this feature because it makes it easy for recipients to add shared contact cards to their address books. According to the report, after installing the WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2247.2.0 update, the new feature is being made available to a small number of beta testers.

The ability to track call history within WhatsApp’s desktop app is also being rolled out, according to a recent report by WABetaInfo. For those who are not familiar, WABetaInfo is a website tracker that tracks new and upcoming WhatsApp features.

The beta for Windows 2.2246.4.0 update, which brings the ability to manage call history within the desktop app itself, has reportedly been made available by WhatsApp on the Microsoft Store. This indicates that the feature is only now accessible to desktop beta users.

Sharing a screenshot, The report also shows a new calls tab that appears when using WhatsApp. Users of WhatsApp’s desktop app can view a list of their call history in the new tab.

By opening the calling card, they will also have access to information about the call. The call history may not immediately sync with the one on your mobile device because this app is still in beta testing, according to the report. It goes on to say that calls made using the native desktop app might not actually reach your phone. The problem will probably be fixed in a subsequent release.

Following the installation of the WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2246.4.0 update from the Microsoft Store, as previously mentioned, the calls tab within the app sidebar has been made available to some beta testers. Over the next few days, more beta testers are likely to receive it.
