WhatsApp’s Upcoming Feature: In-App Dialer for Seamless Communication


WhatsApp hosts billions of active users, yet it constantly works to boost user interaction and attract new sign-ups. There have been recent reports on a new feature in the app that prompts you to start conversations with people in your contacts. Similarly, a recent beta version of the app shows that adding new contacts might become easier too.

Meta’s messaging app is one of the top apps on Android today. It even lets you message people without saving their contact information, which is useful for brief interactions, such as with a DoorDash driver.

Adding contacts isn’t the most convenient or intuitive process. Typically, if the information wasn’t shared through the attachment menu, you’d likely tap the New message floating action button (FAB), select New contact, and then add the contact from there. Alternatively, you could switch to your dialer app, type in the phone number, and add the contact from there before the user appears in your WhatsApp contact list.

WhatsApp In-App Dialer Could be a Game ChangerWhatsApp in-app Dialer

A possible solution to these cumbersome user experiences has emerged in the latest WhatsApp beta (v2.24.9.28). WABetaInfo has reported that Meta appears to be developing a dialer within WhatsApp. It’s unclear where this feature will be located within the app, but if implemented correctly, it could offer limitless potential.

A dialer within WhatsApp could save time and effort by allowing you to call someone directly without first saving their contact information. It could also streamline the process of creating new contacts or facilitate quick interactions with businesses and professionals you might only need to contact once.

WhatsApp In-App Dialer to Focus on Voice CallsWhatsApp in-app Dialer

The screenshot includes a phone-like Call button, indicating that the dialer will mainly focus on simplifying calling rather than messaging. It’s important to note that all interactions on WhatsApp—including chats, voice calls, and video calls come with end-to-end encryption. Additionally, making international calls via WhatsApp can be cheaper than traditional calling methods.
