WhatsApp continues to work on new features to improve its platform and its users’ experience with it. The most recent consists of a system that will allow the creation of shortcuts to call phonebook contacts from the home page of the mobile device. Through these shortcuts, it will not even be necessary to enter the application to initiate a call with another user.

This novelty is already present in the most recent update of the version Beta of WhatsApp to Android and it has the objective of saving time for all those users who regularly use the platform to make calls. Next, we explain a little more about how this option works in its tests and when it could arrive in the conventional application.

As indicated by the portal WABetaInfo version update Beta of WhatsApp to Android includes a new function with which users can create shortcuts on the home screen of their smartphone, the same as the rest of the installed applications. From here, just press the shortcut to call the desired contact.

To create a call shortcut in WhatsApp, the user must enter the application and press for a few seconds on a contact from their agenda. After this, a menu will be displayed with several options and among these is the function to generate the shortcut.

After this, the icon will appear on the home screen with which the user can directly call the chosen person without having to enter WhatsApp and select it from your schedule, saving a certain amount of time.

This is what the option to create direct call shortcuts looks like in the trial version of WhatsApp.

WhatsApp continues to renew its proposal

According to what you mention WABetaInfo the option is already working normally in version update Beta of WhatsApp to Android, but it is still limited to this test edition. The feature is still in development and will likely be integrated into the regular WhatsApp client in a future version.

Likewise, the Meta instant messaging application is also working on other tools and news that will arrive on its platform soon. These include an option to keep photos in their original quality and a revamped interface for your camera.
