With the new beta update, users will be able to instantly return voice and video calls by simply tapping on the call back icon. To access this feature, beta testers of WhatsApp web must install the latest version 2.2323.1.0 from the Microsoft Store.

Furthermore, following the generative AI trend, Meta intends to integrate WhatsApp with chatbots similar to ChatGPT, allowing users to engage with them in various personas. Additionally, the company recently announced its progress in testing AI-powered tools for generating image backgrounds and variations of written copy for advertising campaigns.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is currently beta testing the display of profile icons alongside messages in group chats.
