WhatsApp to add QR codes for contact sharing

WABetaInfo in a blog post late on Tuesday said, “It was already possible in the past, but WhatsApp wanted to start to redesign this functionality on iOS and Android, making it easier to use. The feature will replace the current option, so it will be located in the same menu. The UI is very simple and intuitive. You can choose the country where the user is located (owner of the phone number you want to add), so WhatsApp will automatically insert the country code, then you can insert the phone number.”

The QR code was firstly in iOS but is now being introduced in Android too. It would be useful for people belonging to firms, so they can share their contact with several people through QR codes.
