Meta-owned instant messaging app WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out a feature that adds a shortcut to open AI-based conversations from the Chats tab
“After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 184.108.40.206 update available from the Google Play Store, we noticed that WhatsApp is introducing a new shortcut to open AI chats,” WABetaInfo reported.
According to the report, the Chats tab will have a new button above the icon to start new chats. With this button, it is possible to open AI-powered chats quickly, making the process faster and even easier for users.
It is important to note that chats powered by artificial intelligence are still available to a certain group of users, and a more precise date for a wider release is not known. However, there are plans to expand this feature to a wider audience in the future.
By implementing a separate shortcut, users can quickly access AI-based conversations directly from the Chats tab without opening the contact list.
“We believe this process will significantly reduce the time and effort required to initiate these special conversations. Additionally, placing the shortcut prominently in the Chats tab ensures that users are aware of this feature and incorporate AI-assisted interaction into their normal use of the messaging app,” WABetaInfo said.
The feature, which adds a shortcut to open AI-powered chats from the Chats tab, is available to some beta testers who install the latest WhatsApp beta update for Android from the Google Play Store, and will roll out to more people in the coming weeks. .
Meanwhile, WhatsApp has introduced a new Privacy Checkup feature for Android and iOS devices that allows users to conveniently customize their security settings.
The new WhatsApp Privacy Checkup feature provides step-by-step instructions for confirming your account’s overall security and adjusting your privacy settings in one centralized location.
