WhatsApp New Update Allows you to add Contacts by Scanning Profile QR Code

AlbertflexAlbertflex in May 30, 2020

WhatsApp consistently tries to experiment and implement a new and improved feature/functionality. As we all know WhatsApp pushes a new update every day or every alternative day. A new beta update in the iOS stream suggests that FACEBOOK owned WhatsApp is working on a new feature i.e., a new Profile QR Code system. This is very similar to the Snapchat feature that will make it easy for users to add new contacts just by scanning the QR codes.

The news came up from WABetaInfo, and consistent with them, the feature to feature contacts using QR codes will appear under the settings profile. Sharing the QR code will allow a user to let anyone add them to their contacts. to feature a contact, there’ll be a choice to scan the QR code and therefore the contact is going to be added to WhatsApp directly.

The first change may be a rather minor one that simply allows you to feature contacts to your WhatsApp list by scanning a QR code, potentially avoiding the pain of contacts not being properly pulled in from your phone’s contacts list. The second update is more significant because it adds end-to-end encryption to WhatsApp chat backups in Apple’s iCloud.

If WhatsApp decides to travel ahead and include the feature in an upcoming update to its public iOS app, authorities, hackers, and even Apple are going to be excluded from reading your unencrypted text messages. The update would improve the end-to-end encryption available from WhatsApp to messages being stored in iCloud. And at an equivalent time, WhatsApp is functioning on equivalent protection for its chat backups on Android.

This new feature is basically getting to be an improvement and is probably going to exchange the present method to feature contacts to WhatsApp. The new feature also will save time. The feature to feature contacts using QR codes goes to be helpful for WhatsApp Business users and for those that had to feature tons of latest contacts frequently. So, they’re going to be ready to add contacts to WhatsApp quickly.

As for the general public launch of the QR code feature, there’s no word on when this feature might roll call at the stable build. WhatsApp has had an erratic history with beta features, and while some features have made it to the stable builds quite swiftly, others, like the much-hyped Dark Mode, took rather look to return out of beta. Reports further suggest that the QR code scanning feature of WhatsApp can also allude to the multi-device account support that’s expected soon, which can even be coming soon.

So this new feature will allow users to scan a person's code and add them to their contacts? I think thats super cool. Like it was mentioned in the article, it would save time and make the process stress free for both the adder and the added. I think there are pros though. The only one I can think of right now is that this only works when the phones of the people involved are in close contact. Otherwise, one would revert to the other method of saving contacts. Either way, if this feature does make it out of the beta testing mode, it would gladden the heart of every WhatsApp user, especially the TV owners and influences.

That will be interesting so that all dis scammers will stop spying on people's messages

WizardWizard in Jun 04, 2020 Reply

I don't think it a good idea to use the scanning style, it won't be possible to add someone in another unlike the present style when the people can just easily send their number and you add them up.

Well I really appreciate this option.... Though, I really don't see the use of this because if anyone don't wanna give u his or her contact, u still can't scan their code

Not so bad, but I think it's only applicable to people who are in close contact
