The new Favourites feature will let users add, reorder, or remove contacts in a specific order. The said feature was spotted in the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android.

The feature is currently not available to beta testers yet. However, it is expected to be rolled out in one of the upcoming updates.

As per a new report of WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on integrating a Favourites tab within the Settings menu. The Favourites tab was spotted in the WhatsApp beta codes for Android update. Despited being listed in the codes of the app, it is not visible to Beta users. The report highlighted that currently the feature could not be explored due to the same restrictions.

The new feature will be placed between Account and Privacy options. The new option of Favourites contains the description “Add, reorder, remove”. Opening the setting, a new screen mentions, “Make it easy to find the people and groups that matter most across WhatsApp”.
