WhatsApp improves its contact pages and you may already have them

WhatsApp is rolling out some big changes to the way its contact pages look and you might already have them – the change isn’t just available to those in the recent beta.

The upgrade is not yet available to everyone but East available for some both on the beta version of WhatsApp and the one available in the App Store. I have access to it, for example, while other members of the iMore team do not have access to it.

The new contact page was first reported by WABetaInfo and was first made available to some WhatsApp Business users. The new look is much sleeker and places a search shortcut at the very top, making it easier to find text in a conversation.

As you can see in this screenshot, the new redesigned interface is the same as implemented on Business Info, and it also includes a new search message shortcut. Note that when you visit Business Info, you can also view status updates submitted by businesses, but this feature is not available for standard WhatsApp accounts.

If you don’t see the new contact page yet, it seems likely that you will soon enough.

WhatsApp is one of the best iPhone apps to chat with other people, especially those who are green bubbles and use Android devices.
