Last year, we learned that WhatsApp was working on a feature that would allow users to send messages to unsaved contacts.

While this feature hasn’t been rolled out to everyone yet, the platform has now begun developing an in-app calling feature that allows users to call people on WhatsApp without saving their numbers.

This calling feature has been spotted on WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.24.9.28.

It will be convenient much like the ability to send a message to someone on WhatsApp without needing to save their number first, as users won’t have to bother with temporarily adding numbers to their address book if they won’t be communicating with them frequently or just for one or two conversations.

Additionally, WhatsApp is working on a feature called “hidden groups” that allows users to hide groups in communities.

This was spotted in WhatsApp beta version 2.24.9.20 for Android, which only allows invited members to find and join the group and allows community admins to find and remove it.

It’s unclear when these features will be released to users worldwide on the stable version.
