WhatsApp releases so many interesting features from the past few months. Starting from the most awaited feature which is WhatsApp payment, added earlier in January. Furthermore, WhatsApp’s delete message feature, switch between voice and video call feature excited user to use the application more and more. Well, as per the recent update WhatsApp has added other two new features for the Beta testers. If you are a Beta tester, you should take a step towards the update app form the Google Play Store.

WhatsApp Inc. has added two new features:

  1. Chat Duplication
  2. More Options to Send Notification Whenever User Changes Number

#1. Chat Duplication

In the earlier version of WhatsApp application, whenever the user changes the number from the old one to the new one, WhatsApp was not able to create a single chat by just updating the contact in the contact list. So, in the recipient’s WhatsApp application, it creates two separate chats for the older number as well as new number. Well, in this new Beta update, now whenever any user changes its number on WhatsApp, WhatsApp will automatically update the new number in the contact list. So there will be no two separate chats in the chat box.

#2. More Options to Send Notification Whenever User Changes Number

WhatsApp has now added more options to send the notification whenever the user changes mobile phone number from the older one to new one. In the older version, as you know, whenever you change your number, WhatsApp automatically sends out the notification to all groups in which you are a member. However, it was not able to send out the notification to your personal contact.

In the newer Beta update, whenever you will change your number in the application you are using, WhatsApp will ask for the further three options and you have to select anyone.

  • All Contacts: It will notify all the people on the WhatsApp Contact list
  • Contacts I have chats with: Notify WhatsApp contacts with whom one has conversations with
  • Custom: Notify only a selected few contacts chosen by the user from the list

Here note that WhatsApp has not added an option to select the groups. So, it is obvious to you will change the number, WhatsApp will still send the notifications to all groups.
