WhatsApp, known for its focus on phone numbers as the primary means of connection between users, continues to work on improving its features. Over the years, it has implemented enhancements, such as the ability to start chats with unsaved numbers.
Meta has been working on the application, allowing users to choose a username, making it easier to find other users without knowing their phone numbers.
It will be available in a future app update
Although this feature has been in testing for over six months without an official release, according to WABetaInfo, they have discovered more details related to the username in the latest beta version for Android devices.
In the beta version, it has been found that the search button in WhatsApp now includes the ability to search for names, usernames, and numbers. Although it has not been seen in action yet, this feature could provide a more flexible way to find contacts in the application.
The exact implementation of usernames and the possibility to change them after claiming them is not clear at this time, but more details are expected to be revealed soon as the feature develops.
