Over the years, WhatsApp has been known for its dedication to ensuring user convenience by introducing user-friendly features to improve their experience. Maintaining this stand, the firm is pleased to announce that a new WhatsApp beta for Android that allows users to make their phone number visible on the Desktop beta is about to roll out soon.

According to WaBetaInfo, the new feature is still under development but will be released soon. WaBetaInfo disclosed this today in a post revealing that the American instant messaging service is working on a new feature that allows users to make their phone number visible for a future update of the app.

When this feature is finally released, apart from making phone numbers visible, users will also be able to contact certain businesses via Click to WhatsApp ad without sharing the phone number with them and show the WhatsApp phone number visibility right within a business chat. Then, a new option within chat information that lets you discover if your phone number is visible to the business will be added. 

However, it should be noted that this feature does not involve your phone number always being hidden when contacting businesses: it may be hidden when contacting the business via an ad in some cases. Therefore, the platform keeps working on varied features to improve its users’ experience.

The platform is a well-known cross-platform text messaging app that enables users to communicate via text messages and phone calls solely via the internet. The most widely used messenger in the world is used each month by more than two billion people.

As it stands now, the social media service has not fixed a particular date for the release of the WhatsApp phone number visibility feature. Still, we expect to see it soon as WaBetaInfo discloses that it is underdevelopment. Therefore, stay connected with TechGenyz as we bring you the latest updates in the Tech world.
