WhatsApp is putting contact editing inside the app and it’s about time

The latest WhatsApp beta on Android is getting a neat, little upgrade as it is finally allowing users an in-app way to both edit and add new contacts.

You may be wondering: “Doesn’t this already exist? It seems like a pretty basic thing to have.” It sort of does, but it’s not the same. Currently, if you try to edit your contacts, WhatsApp will redirect you to your phone’s native contacts list. Ppeople who have WhatsApp beta version, 8.4, 8.5, or 8.6 should now see a different user interface when editing or adding contacts that more closely reflects the app’s style. When you do add someone, their information will immediately be saved onto the device’s contacts list or Google account; whichever is available.
