New Delhi: WhatsApp, a Meta-owned instant messaging platform, is gearing up to roll out a new feature for quick calling to a favourite person. This new feature is termed ‘favourite contacts,’ which allows users to set some of their contacts as favourites so that they can call them quickly on iOS.
The new feature, spotted by WABetaInfo, has been introduced to improve overall accessibility by providing a quick and intuitive shortcut for calling favourite contacts directly from the calls tab. The upcoming ‘Favorite contacts’ feature will appear at the top of the calls tab, ensuring a phone call is always just one tap away.

Currently, this feature is still under development and not available for beta testers. However, it is anticipated to be integrated into an upcoming update of the WhatsApp iOS app.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp has started rolling out a new feature that lets iOS users create, edit, and share their stickers.
