Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is all set to introduce a new shortcut for its users through which they can place a video call while viewing a contact's status.
WABetaInfo reported that the feature was identified in the new update, which Whatsapp is rolling out through the Google Play Beta Programme — bringing the version up to 184.108.40.206.
For now, the update is compatible with WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11, but some users may receive the same feature on 18.104.22.168+, WABetaInfo said.
"This is a minor addition like the shortcut to call your WhatsApp contacts in the same section. People that still use 2.21.23 beta updates or the latest WhatsApp for Android Web Release can also get the voice call shortcut," the WhatsApp news tracker said.
