WhatsApp everyday tries to experiment and implement a new and improved feature/functionality. As we all know WhatsApp pushes a new update every day or every alternative day. A new beta update in the iOS stream suggests that FACEBOOK owned WhatsApp is working on a new feature i.e., a new Profile QR Code system. This is very similar to the Snapchat feature that will make it easy for users to add new contacts just by scanning the QR codes.
The news came up from WABetaInfo, andÂ consistent withÂ them, the featureÂ to featureÂ contacts using QR codes will appear under the settings profile. Sharing the QR code will allow a user to let anyone add them to their contacts.Â to featureÂ a contact,Â there’llÂ be a choice toÂ scan the QR codeÂ and therefore theÂ contactÂ is going to be added to WhatsApp directly.
The first changeÂ may be aÂ rather minor one that simply allows youÂ to featureÂ contacts to your WhatsApp list by scanning a QR code, potentially avoiding the pain of contacts not being properly pulled in from your phoneâs contacts list. The second update is more significantÂ because itÂ adds end-to-end encryption to WhatsApp chat backups in Appleâs iCloud.
If WhatsApp decidesÂ to travelÂ ahead and include the feature in an upcoming update to its public iOS app, authorities, hackers, and even AppleÂ are going to be excludedÂ from reading your unencrypted text messages. The update would improve the end-to-end encryption available from WhatsApp to messages being stored in iCloud. And at an equivalentÂ time, WhatsAppÂ is functioningÂ onÂ equivalentÂ protection for its chat backups on Android.
This new featureÂ is basicallyÂ getting toÂ be an improvement andÂ is probably goingÂ to exchangeÂ the presentÂ methodÂ to featureÂ contacts to WhatsApp. The new featureÂ also willÂ saveÂ time. The featureÂ to featureÂ contacts using QR codesÂ goesÂ to be helpful for WhatsApp Business users and forÂ those thatÂ hadÂ to featureÂ tonsÂ of latestÂ contacts frequently. So,Â they’re going toÂ beÂ ready toÂ add contacts to WhatsApp quickly.
As forÂ the general publicÂ launch of the QR code feature,Â there’sÂ no word on when this feature might rollÂ call atÂ the stable build. WhatsApp has had an erratic history with beta features, and while some features have made it to the stable builds quite swiftly, others,Â likeÂ the much-hyped Dark Mode, took rather lookÂ to returnÂ out of beta. Reports further suggest that the QR code scanning feature of WhatsAppÂ can alsoÂ allude to the multi-device account supportÂ that’sÂ expected soon,Â which canÂ even beÂ coming soon.
