WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will enable users to attach notes to contacts.

This feature is expected to be the Meta-owned app’s next future release.


It aims to allow users to post notes on contacts from within the chat info box, providing them with a quick way to remember the important details.

It's important to note that this is a business-only function and won't be accessible at first for regular WhatsApp accounts, according to WABetaInfo.

However, users will gain a lot from being able to attach notes to contacts. This feature lets users keep critical notes about their clients from within the chat info box, making it a useful way to help them organise their interactions.

Moreover, WhatsApp also hopes to improve the administration of crucial information regarding communication and make it easier for users to refer to their contacts by adding notes.

Additionally, this feature will protect users' privacy and confidentiality, enabling them to keep customised records without jeopardising the integrity of their interactions.

As businesses may add important facts about their clients and reminders to ensure that they are instantly visible inside their info, we think this feature could also be a helpful reminder tool.
