Facebook-owned WhatsApp is testing a feature similar to Snapchat. The social messaging app is testing a new feature that will allow users to add contacts by scanning their QR code.
According to a report from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is testing a feature for both Android and iOS. Your personal QR code will be available in the app Settings. Your code will appear under the My Code section. You can show that QR code to the people so that they can directly add your contact. Once you share the QR code, WhatsApp will also share your phone number. Requested people will scan the QR code from the Scan Code section present under the settings. If you accidentally show your QR code to the wrong person, you can revoke it immediately.
The feature is similar to the Snapchat’s Snapcode QR. It is still in the beta so we are not sure when it will be available to the users.
