WhatsApp is rolling out a new update through the Google Play Beta Program. The messaging app is testing a new feature in its beta program for Android that suggests contacts you might want to chat with.

The feature aims to enhance communication by suggesting contacts for initiating new conversations. It also helps users rediscover contacts they may have inadvertently overlooked or forgotten about.

When you open the app, you might see a new section at the bottom of your chats list. This section will show suggested contacts who you have not chatted with before.

Thanks to the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 2.24.9.5 update, which is available on the Google Play Store, we discovered that WhatsApp is now rolling out the feature to suggest contacts to chat with. — WABetaInfo website

Previously, WABetaInfo reported that WhatsApp was developing a contact suggestion feature. Now, the update is available to some beta testers.

Some lucky beta testers are already experiencing this handy feature, which suggests new contacts to chat with directly from your address book.

Beta testers will notice a new section in their chat list.

It is for some people to test the app before it will be available to everyone. The update helps you find new people to talk to easily. Just look at the bottom of your chats list, and you'll see suggestions of who to chat with. It's like WhatsApp is saying, "Hey, why not chat with these people?"

These suggestions are also presented to new users during their initial registration with WhatsApp, helping them establish connections from the start.

If you are part of the WhatsApp beta for Android program, keep an eye out for this update on the Google Play Store. However, keep in mind that beta versions can sometimes be buggy or unstable.

And if you are not, don't worry - WhatsApp plans to roll out this feature to more users in the coming weeks. So, get ready to let WhatsApp lend you a helping hand in starting those conversations.
