WhatsApp has released a new function to find out if a contact registered in the messenger. The test done via iPhone (iOS) does not need to add the number in the phonebook. With the feature, the user can save time on a day to day basis as the information displayed at the time the digit string is entered. In addition, stakeholders avoid stuffing the phone book with unnecessary numbers.
The simple and fast procedure is done entirely by the WhatsApp interface without the need for extra applications. The news was recently made available in Brazil in an update to the Apple smartphone. Keep in mind that the feature remains out of Google Android devices. Check out the following tutorial prepared by TechTudo, how to use the native messenger function.

Step 3. Enter the contact number, with the DDD at the beginning. For example, for Rio de Janeiro (capital): 21 XXXXX-XXXX. Note that the number will then be recognized and identified by WhatsApp with the messages: "Not in WhatsApp" or "Account in WhatsApp". The information appears before the contact is saved in the calendar or WhatsApp;
