To enhance user convenience and privacy, WhatsApp, the globally renowned instant messaging application, has introduced a new feature that allows users to chat with unsaved contacts. This innovative feature is available on the latest versions of WhatsApp for both iOS and Android platforms.
Previously, to initiate a conversation, users were required to save the contact number first. However, this new feature eliminates that necessity, enabling users to start conversations with strangers by simply searching for their phone numbers, without the need to save them in their address book.
This development marks a significant step towards making interactions with unknown numbers more convenient and private. It also underscores WhatsApp’s commitment to continually evolve its features to meet the needs of its users.
To use this feature, users can enter an unfamiliar phone number into the WhatsApp search bar. The application will then search outside of the user’s saved contacts. If the entered number is associated with a WhatsApp account, the user will be able to initiate a conversation.
To check if this feature is available on your WhatsApp account, you can browse your contact lists and search for a phone number. For iOS users, tap the “start new chat” button in the chat list and type in the unknown phone number in the search bar. Android users can follow the same procedure to search for and open a chat with unknown phone numbers.
With this new feature, WhatsApp continues to uphold its reputation as one of the most user-friendly instant messaging applications, constantly introducing new features that cater to the evolving needs of its vast user base.
