WhatsApp, a staple in many people’s daily routines, is reportedly developing a document preview feature for Android users, aiming to streamline document sharing within chats.

New Whatsapp Feature: View Documents Without Downloading! Testing Starts..

Enhanced User Experience

The new feature, as per reports from WA Beta Info, will display a small preview of shared documents, allowing users to see what the document looks like before opening it. This sneak peek feature aims to simplify the process of finding the right document in a chat.

Improved Document Sharing

Currently, sharing photos or videos as documents on WhatsApp poses challenges, requiring recipients to download the file to view its contents. With document previews, users can assess the document’s content without downloading, enhancing the overall sharing experience.

Contact Suggestions Feature

In addition to document previews, WhatsApp is also rumored to be working on a contact suggestion feature. This feature suggests contacts for initiating new chats, particularly those with whom users haven’t interacted for some time.

Cross-Platform Availability

Initially reported for Android, the contact suggestion feature is now said to be extending to iOS users as well, according to the latest updates from WA Beta Info. The feature aims to facilitate seamless communication by providing easy access to potential new conversations.

User Control and Opt-Out Option

Users wary of receiving contact suggestions can easily opt out by closing the dedicated section in the chats list. This ensures that users have control over their messaging experience and can tailor it to their preferences.

Awaited Official Announcement

While WA Beta Info provides reliable insights, these features have not been officially announced by WhatsApp. Users are advised to await an official announcement from WhatsApp regarding the release and availability of these features.
