How to find out if a number has WhatsApp and add directly from the app | Social networks

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.
