Another unique feature came in the WhatsApp Android app
Whatsapp is now testing the Launcher app shortcut on the Android app. With the help of these shortcuts, users will now be able to access any specific features of WhatsApp set directly. Let’s say that the testing of this feature is currently running on the Android Beta app. At the moment, it is not clear how long it will be offered on a stable build.
Android Police first reported the shortcut to this app. This can be said about this launcher app shortcut that it is not very workable. The user can not directly update the status with this help, or any other chat chat can not be reached. Rather the user gets the option to open the camera directly or go to the chat window.
There is also a shortcut ‘New Chat’, but those who use WhatsApp always know that new chat is rarely used. We often chat with people who are on our chat screen. We have this feature on Android Beta V 2.17.277 and there is also a shortcut message for the star message.
The App Shortcut feature was introduced with Android 7.0 Nouga, but the user will also be able to access this feature on Android 6.0 Martalmall with the help of launchers like Nova and Action. Users on the menu will be able to assign a shortcut to the swap gesture on the menu. You can also create a custom shortcut on your home screen by dragging these app shortcuts. It’s a good thing. But most users will not want to keep their home screens filled with these shortcuts. Let’s say that this feature is currently undergoing testing. It is expected that the time will come to try to make this feature better and work by the Whatsapp.
In order to download the latest Android version of the Whatsapp beta app, the user must sign up for the Android Beta program. Apart from this, users can also download APK Mirror from here.
