WhatsApp, a Meta-owned messaging platform is reportedly rolling out a new 'Push name within the chat list' feature for the iOS beta.
Beta testers will be able to see the push names within the chat list instead of looking at the phone numbers displayed every when someone texts the user- rather than receiving a message from an unknown group member, WABetainfo reports.

This feature will enable the iOS beta user to make the users understand easily, who the unknown contact is, without even saving the number of the sender. It will be helpful for the participants of the larger group chats, where users are unable to keep a track of who is sending the message- certainly going to help more for recognition.
Is the feature available for the masses?
At present, the feature is only available for some iOS beta testers, which could be manually installed. The latest version of WhatsApp beta from the TestFlight app is expected to arrive soon for more users soon, date not specified by the time of writing, the report further stated.
