WhatsApp, a popular Meta-owned instant messaging application has rolled out a feature that includes a shortcut for accessing AI-powered chats directly from the Chats tab. There is a new button within the navigation bar in the Chats tab and it allows users to quickly open the AI-powered chat.
“With the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.214.171.124 update on the TestFlight app, some beta testers on the iOS app are now receiving the shortcut,” WABetaInfo reported.
With the introduction of a dedicated shortcut, users can now directly access AI-powered chats from the Chats Tab without navigating through the chat list to find the previous interaction with the AI.
As per the report, this approach significantly reduces the time and effort required to initiate these specialised conversations. In addition, placing the shortcut prominently in the Chats tab ensures users are well-informed about this feature, encouraging the integration of AI-assisted interactions into their regular use of the messaging app.
The report revealed that AI-powered chats are still exclusively available to a specific user group, and the timeline for a broader release remains unknown. However, there are ongoing plans to extend this feature to a wider audience in the future.
It’s also worth noting that some users who install the latest version of WhatsApp for iOS from the App Store may be able to experiment with this shortcut.
A new feature providing a shortcut to open AI-powered chats from the Chats tab is now accessible to some beta testers. Users can access this feature by installing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS from the TestFlight app, and it will be gradually rolled out to more users in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is also working on a new feature to allow channel owners to request a review for their suspended channels, and this ability will be available in the future.
