To handle the privacy and security issues conveniently for the past several months, WhatsApp had been working on its app. The new WhatsApp vCard feature that we are talking about allows the users to quickly identify new and unknown contacts. As of now, this feature can be only availed on the Android platform.

Whenever a person within your contact list sends a card in a chat, WhatsApp automatically saves it so that it can be useful information and can be reused again when needed. All the details of the contract will be saved within the vCard itself.

To get a hands-on experience of this feature, the latest version of WhatsApp, which is 2.18.116 Android Beta needs to be downloaded from the Google Play Store. As we have discussed earlier, the Android users will be getting this update from today onwards, we have not got any details on when the iOS will hit the market.

Along with the addition of the WhatsApp vCard feature, it has fixed some bugs troubling the users in the previous versions of the app. Like, in the older version, words like “TODAY” and “YESTERDAY” appeared in terms of ASCII code. Though the older glitches have been taken care of, users have started complaining about a new issues. As per them, except for the two words “YESTERDAY” and “TODAY,” all the words appear in English though the default language of the app is something else.
