WhatsApp introduces contact cards sharing on Windows beta version: All details

2 min read

WhatsApp is a popular messaging platform with more than 2 billion users across the globe. The Meta-owned company keeps bringing new features to improve the app experience for its users. The instant messaging platform is now rolling out the ability to share contact cards on Windows beta version, as per a report.

According to a WABetaInfo report, this new feature would let users share contact cards within the same chat share sheet. Notably, the entry point ‘Contacts’ will emerge if this feature is already enabled for the user’s WhatsApp account.

This feature will help the users as when someone shares a contact card, the recipient would simply be able to add it to their address book. As per the report, the new feature is rolling out to some select beta users after downloading the WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2247.2.0 update.

Meanwhile, as per a latest report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is also rolling out the ability to track call history within its desktop app. For those unaware, WABetaInfo is an online tracker which traces new and upcoming features of WhatsApp.

According to the report, WhatsApp has released the beta for Windows 2.2246.4.0 update on the Microsoft Store which brings the ability to manage call history within the desktop app itself. This means that the feature is currently available for desktop beta users only.

Sharing a screenshot, the report shows a new calls tab that opens up when you use WhatsApp. In the new tab, users can see the list of their call history within WhatsApp’s desktop app. They will also be able to access information about the call by opening the call card. “Since this app is a beta version, the call history may not immediately be in sync with the one on your mobile device”, the report says. In fact, calls placed from the native desktop app may not show up on your phone, it further adds. The issue is likely to be addressed in a future release.

As mentioned above, the calls tab within the app sidebar has been released to some beta testers after installing the WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2246.4.0 update from the Microsoft Store. It is likely to roll out to more beta testers over the coming days.
