WhatsApp is working on a new feature to enhance calling experience on the platform. The upcoming feature will add a new in-app dialer feature that will allow users to make calls directly from the app. The feature is currently available on  WhatsApp beta for Android update. Here are all the details you need to know. 

According to WABetaInfo, users will not need to add contacts to their address book to make calls from the app. Users will find a new floating action button located within the calls tab that will enable access to the in-app dialer. In addition, the report mentioned that after entering a phone number, users will also have the option to save the number to the address book as a new contact or add it to an existing contact card.

A messaging shortcut will also be available within the dialer screen that will allow users to quickly send a message to a phone number they initially planned to dial but chose to message instead, the report added.

The feature is presently available to some beta testers who install the latest updates of WhatsApp beta for Android from the Google Play Store, and will roll out to even more people over the coming days, the report said.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp has recently updated its status tab with a new design. In the previous version, the status tab had a circular layout, but it has now been changed to a square shape for Android users. The update also introduces a status preview feature, allowing users to preview status updates without clicking on them. This change aims to provide users with a new and improved experience. The status preview feature is being rolled out gradually, so users who have not yet received the update should expect it to arrive in the coming days.
