  • WhatsApp technology: The two great changes that have come to your mobile


is implementing a

new tool that is used to create a chat group

with a certain contact directly from their

own profile,

as a shortcut, on Android devices.

As published

by WABetaInfo

, some beta testers already had the opportunity to access this shortcut in the

beta version of WhatsApp for Android

Now this tool has been released to

more users through the Google Play Beta Program in its updated version,

for Android.

The application has added a

shortcut called 'Create group' in the 'Contact information' section

, an option that

is only visible when the user already has a group in common with said contact.

Currently, the application offers different options from this section, either to

block or report these contacts


You can also mute your notifications and customize them.

With this shortcut, once you click on the shortcut,

WhatsApp will automatically select the contact to add it to a new group

, since it will not be created immediately.

This happens because, by choosing the option, the application will offer the user

the opportunity to add more participants to a group chat before creating it.

At the moment it is unknown when this shortcut will reach all users and if finally the

iOS operating system will also have it

, although WhatsApp plans more activations in the future.
