What’s new in WhatsApp Beta for Android version 184.108.40.206
One of the features is the visibility of the phone number. Which will prevent some businesses from viewing the user’s number in the event of contact via an advertising. The developers aim to provide users the option to manually reveal their phone number when talking with a specific business that does not already have it, obviously only if they want to.
Users will have the ability to see if the commercial activity in question can access their phone number inside the information about the firm. And if they can’t, a unique option will allow them to disclose it. According to what is present in WhatsApp Beta version 220.127.116.11. Until it is available in a stable version of the app, this functionality will likely still be under development.

It is worth mentioning that Whatsapp is also working on a new tool called WhatsApp Surveys. It could be in use to securely collect feedback on new features, products and more. In order to avoid misunderstandings, in the presence of a new survey, WhatsApp will clarify the purpose. Leaving users the maximum freedom to decide whether to accept the invitation and provide their feedback or decline the proposal. In addition, users who no longer want to take part in the survey will be able to block the chat. So there are no limitations.
