The feature, currently in development, will provide users with an additional layer of privacy by enabling them to opt for a unique username instead of relying only on phone numbers to identify contacts.

The upcoming username feature will be accessible through the WhatsApp Settings > Profile section, offering users the ability to personalize their accounts further. By choosing a username, users will have the option to connect with others by simply entering the username within the app, without the need to know their phone numbers.

Importantly, conversations initiated through usernames will be still protected by end-to-end encryption, ensuring secure communication.

This feature comes in addition to other significant improvements on both iOS and Android, such as message editing within a short time frame after sending, multi-device account support, and the upcoming feature of short video messages.
