WhatsApp’s latest beta version is giving users the option to add contacts by scanning QR codes.
As per reports on WABetaInfo, the feature is available for both Android and iOS and can be accessed in the app’s Settings menu. The option is available right beside your display picture.
A QR code can also be revoked if you accidentally share the code with someone who you do not want to share your number with. And you can do this an unlimited number of times.
WhatsApp beta for Android 2.20.171: what's new?— WABetaInfo (@WABetaInfo) May 21, 2020
WhatsApp is finally rolling out the support for QR Codes for beta testers! ✅https://t.co/ZTR32Mm5Qb
At the moment the feature lets you create a contact in the phone’s address book. What is a bit of an inconvenience is that you will have to manually search for the contact in your WhatsApp contact list to send them a WhatsApp message.
The QR code method is a convenient way of adding someone to your list when they are present in front of you but it is still difficult if you want to carry out this process online.
Currently, the feature is only available to users who had enrolled for WhatsApp’s Beta program. It will be rolled out soon in the full version.
