WhatsApp, the world’s most popular messaging platform, constantly tries to improve the user experience by introducing new features. In this series, WhatsApp users may soon get the new chat suggestions feature, which will suggest contacts for users to chat.

This feature is currently available only for select beta testers, but it is expected that it will be rolled out for all users in the coming time. Let’s know about WhatsApp Contacts Suggestion feature in detail.

WhatsApp users may soon get the new chat suggestions feature

Remember, some time ago we told, that contact suggestion feature is coming in WhatsApp Android beta version? This feature helps you start chatting with people you have not talked to yet. So now it seems WhatsApp is bringing this wonder to iOS users too!

After downloading the latest WhatsApp beta iOS version 24.8.10.70 from the TestFlight app, I found out that WhatsApp has added the same feature there too! This means that now even iOS users will find it easier to start a chat!

What is the WhatsApp Contacts Suggestion feature?

This new feature of WhatsApp will suggest users to chat with people in their contact list with whom they have never interacted before.

This feature can prove to be very helpful for those people who have a long list of phone numbers, but due to their busy lifestyle they are unable to contact them.

With the help of this feature, users will be able to know which people in their contact list use WhatsApp and can get a chance to start chatting with them.

How will the feature work?

As you can see in this screenshot, some WhatsApp beta testers may be getting the new feature that suggests contacts to chat. This is amazing isn’t it?

In the update that WhatsApp beta testers have received, a new section appears at the bottom of the chat list, called “Chats”. In this section, users will see the names and profile pictures of those contacts with whom they have not chatted yet.

This feature gives suggestions based on the user’s contact list and data about their contacts who use WhatsApp.

The thing to note is that if you don’t want to see these suggestions, no problem! Just close the suggestions section below the chat list, and you’re done! Now you will not get any new suggestions.

How to use WhatsApp Contacts Suggestions feature

This feature is currently available only for select beta testers, so not all users can use it yet. If you are a beta tester and have this feature available, you can use it as follows:

  • Open WhatsApp and go to the Sections of Chats.
  • At the bottom, look for a new option called “Start Chatting.”
  • In this Option you will see the names and profile pictures of those contacts with whom you have not chatted yet.
  • Tap the name of the contact you want to chat with.
  • The chat window will open and you can start sending messages to that contact.

As we say WhatsApp users may soon get the new chat suggestions feature in iOS version also. This new Contacts Suggestion feature can be very helpful for those who want to make new relationships or strengthen their old ones.
