According to WABetaInfo, a reliable source for WhatsApp updates, the latest WhatsApp beta for Android (version, available on the Google Play Store, indicates that WhatsApp is working on introducing the option to select favorite contacts directly within the Android app.

As seen in the screenshot, users will soon have the ability to select their favorite contacts. Once chosen, these favorites will appear prominently at the top of the calls tab, making it easier to reach out to your most contacted users with just a single tap.

Users will be able to handpick their favorite contacts from the contacts picker, creating a personalized experience based on their preferences.

The Favorites bar will make calling your preferred contacts on WhatsApp much quicker. If you often make calls using WhatsApp, this shortcut will save you valuable time, eliminating the need to search through your call log or contact list repeatedly.

Additionally, due to a recently enacted law in the EU, WhatsApp might introduce cross-platform usability, allowing users to send messages to other apps such as iMessage, Telegram, Google Messages, and Signal.
