Recently, WhatsApp rolled out its latest Beta version that comes with QR code feature that allows users to add contacts by scanning QR codes and it is available on both Android and iOS in beta update.
The Facebook-owned company hasn’t yet provided any official details about the new update, the latest WhatsApp beta versions for both Android and iPhone have been released with support for QR codes.
Beta users can experience the change and provide feedback ahead of a public release. A recent WhatsApp for iPhone beta has also been spotted with a feature called Password Protect Backups that would enable password protection to the backups stored in the iCloud Drive.
As reported by WhatsApp beta watcher WABetaInfo, the latest WhatsApp beta for Android shows that the new feature is available under the Profile settings and allows users to show their QR codes to let anyone quickly add them to their contacts list.
The feature can be found in the app’s settings where there are options to display, share, and also scan other QR codes.
Basically, this feature makes it easier and quicker to save contacts. When allowed for all users, it means sharing personal QR codes translates to sharing phone numbers.
How to get the new feature?
You can experience the QR code integration after downloading the latest WhatsApp beta (version 2.20.171) for Android directly from the Google Play Beta programme or by getting its APK file from APK Mirror.
If you don’t have an Android phone, the new WhatsApp beta for iPhone also offers you QR code support that can be accessed from the Profile section in the Settings menu of the app.
