WhatsApp Working on In-App Dialer

WhatsApp has introduced an in-app dialer in its latest WhatsApp beta for Android update. As you can see in the screenshot shared by WABetaInfo, users will get a dedicated number pad in the app. This will allow people to make WhatsApp calls to unsaved contacts straight from the app.

WhatsApp recently introduced the ability to message unknown numbers without saving contacts, which saves people from the hassle of saving the contacts first to message them on WhatsApp.

As of now, it’s not clear how the in-app dialler will be implemented in the app. It is safe to assume it will either be a floating button like the one for a new message or a dedicated tab in the bottom bar. The feature is currently in development phase and is expected to roll out to general users in a future update.

Mark Zuckerberg has also announced that Ray-Ban Meta glasses now support WhatsApp video calls. Users must update their WhatsApp to the latest version on the Play Store or App Store. This feature will help Ray-Ban Meta glass users make WhatsApp video calls hands-free and show things from the first-person perspective.

It can be useful when users need to show someone the process like assembling furniture, a cooking technique, or a simple view of the location they are in. The feature has started rolling out to Ray-Ban Meta glass users.
