The WhatsApp development team inaugurates a new week of work in progress, releasing the version 188.8.131.52 from WhatsApp Beta.
The new update does not bring tangible news even for beta testers but hides a small feature that will be implemented with a future update. Let’s find out what it is.
WhatsApp Beta 184.108.40.206: let’s discover the small news (hidden)
The special portal WaBetaInfo found that WhatsApp Beta 220.127.116.11 hides a new interface for sharing your profile.
At the moment, in the settings of the messaging app there is an icon depicting a QR code that has the purpose of sharing your profile. With a future update, the QR code will be replaced by a more classic icon for sharing, as evidenced by the screenshot below.
The WhatsApp development team is also working on the redesign of the section for sharing the profile, from which it will be possible to copy and share your own shortlinka code that contains within it the telephone number associated with the account and which, once clicked, immediately refers to the related chat, speeding up the sharing and conversation start operations.
This new screen with the shortlinkhowever, it will certainly be an exclusive of WhatsApp Business and it can be seen from the text that reads “Give your customers a shortlink so they can start a WhatsApp chat with you“.
As abundantly anticipated, the new feature is under development and is not even available for those who use WhatsApp Beta; to see it, it will still take some time.
