WhatsApp brings new shortcuts for group administrators on iPhone

WhatsApp, owned by Meta, has pushed out the latest 23.1.75 update on the Apple App Store. According to a report by WaBetaInfo, the update brings new shortcuts for group admins. These shortcuts will allow group administrators in WhatsApp Group to easily perform actions for a certain contact.

What are the new shortcuts?

According to the report, WhatsApp now highlights a user’s contact number in events such as when a participant joins or leaves a group. With the new update, group admins can also tap and hold a contact’s number to quickly make calls on WhatsApp. They can also chat with group participants in private.

Other shortcuts added with the latest iOS version of WhatsApp are the ability to copy the phone number and add group participants in the address book. The WaBetaInfo report says that the shortcuts will be “useful in large groups where it can be difficult to find a specific contact among the many participants.”

The latest WhatsApp iOS update is available on the App Store. To start using these shortcuts, iPhone users are advised to update the app on their device.

In other news, WhatsApp may soon allow users to share photos with other contacts in the original quality. These days, images shared via WhatsApp are compressed, resulting in grainy photos. But, according to WaBetaInfo, the company is working on the possibility of sending photos in original quality. WaBetaInfo is an online website that tracks upcoming WhatsApp features.

The platform discovered the feature in the beta version of WhatsApp for the Android 2.23.2.11 update. According to the report, the messaging app is planning to add a new settings icon inside the header of the drawing tool. The new icon will allow users to set the quality of the image, including its original quality. This will give them more control over the quality of the photos.
