WhatsApp has introduced the ability to pick and attach multiple contacts in one go without having to send the contacts one at a time. This feature is currently available in the beta version of the app, but it will roll out to other users soon.
Earlier, the app would force you to share only one contact at a time, making the process of sharing a large number of contacts very tedious.
WhatsApp Contact Selector, Multiple contacts
This brings the attach contact section at par with other options like the Document and Gallery options, where you could select multiple documents, pictures, GIFs or videos to send them in a group or a conversation. I certainly wish that the company could do the same while sharing ‘Audio’ files or even ‘Location’. The company is working on introducing ‘Pinned Chats‘, an ‘Internal video player’, ‘Unsend‘, ‘Live locations‘, business tools and other features like ‘vCards indexing’ in future versions.
This update comes right after a report detailed that WhatsApp may be working on integrating UPI payments in the app to send money to friends and family without leaving the app. The last major update that WhatsApp introduced to its users was the ‘WhatsApp Status‘ which was panned by its users. The company had to bring back the ‘Text’ only Status in the form of ‘About’.
