WhatsApp is developing a calling shortcut feature
In a recent beta rollout of the app, WhatsApp is developing a calling shortcut function. A new calling shortcut function will be there in the WhatsApp beta for the Android 126.96.36.199 update. This feature might appear in a later version of the app. Users of the new function will be able to make a calling shortcut for a particular contact, which will then be there immediately on the home screen.
Through the introduction of a straight shortcut to a convenient home screen position, the new functionality will enable users to shorten the duration of a WhatsApp call to a contact. Currently, a device’s WhatsApp app can be open and the contact’s chat can be accessible to accomplish the same task. Those who make frequent contacts, etc., would find this function especially useful.
However, the feature is still under development and will initially be available to beta testers to smooth out any flaws or kinks in the new addition. A stable upgrade to the instant messaging apps will then include the feature.
