If the feature is already enabled for the user’s WhatsApp account, the entry point “Contacts” will appear. With this feature, when a user is sharing a contact card, the recipient can easily add it to their address book.

The report states that the ability to share contact cards has been rolled out for some beta users after they downloaded the WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2247.2.0 update. It further says that it is available on the Microsoft Store and will be rolled out to more beta testers in the coming days.

Earlier this week the messaging platform rolled out the ability to create polls on Windows Beta.

To create a poll, users need to click on the attach icon which is next to the chat bar and can see a poll option.

The feature is end-to-end encrypted, meaning that only others in the same conversation can read and reply to it. It is available for both individual and group chats. Similar to Polls on Android and iOS, the feature lets you create a poll with up to 12 options as answers.

For the unversed, WhatsApp is reportedly working on Voice Status on iOS beta for an upcoming iOS update. It also provides users with the ability to share voice notes in their status updates. It was reported that the microphone icon will appear when users do not enter any text and that it will allow users to post a voice note for their status updates for up to 30 seconds.
