WhatsApp is on the verge of rolling out new features to enhance user experience. One such feature is the “Suggested Chat” section, set to make connecting with new contacts easier than ever. Positioned at the bottom of the chats list, this section will suggest contacts from users’ address books, facilitating new conversations and expanding social networks without disrupting current chats.

In addition to simplifying communication, WhatsApp is also delving into the realm of international payments. The app is reportedly developing a feature that will enable Indian users to conduct overseas transactions using the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) technology. This move is expected to provide a seamless and secure platform for transferring funds globally, albeit limited to countries where banks have activated international UPI services. As WhatsApp continues to evolve its offerings, users can anticipate a more integrated and convenient messaging and payment experience.
