WhatsApp is presently testing a new feature that will soon let you send multiple contacts at once. Earlier, the users were limited to send just one contact at a time, but now that limit has been revoked. The new feature is showing up in the latest Android beta version and would be rolled out commercially soon. More recently, the Facebook-owned WhatsApp has brought back its old Text status feature in Android after the requests of the users.
Android Police has spotted this new feature first, and the report claims that the feature was introduced somewhere in the WhatsApp beta for Android versions 2.17.122 or 2.17.123. The new feature essentially works the same way as earlier, but instead of the restriction to just one contact, the user could now send many contact details or email details instantly. Thus it eradicates the need to perform multiple actions on the app to send two or three contacts with the same person.
Of course, if you are sending information to multiple users, you will have to stick to the ancient method of sending the contacts individually. Interestingly, there appears to be no ceiling limit to the number of contacts you can send once the new feature comes into existence, and we were able to send over 100 contacts to one user simultaneously.

The feature works the same way in the group and individual chats as well. The multiple contacts can be sent to the user in one box, an opening which allows you to pick which contact info you can add to your smartphone, and which you wish to keep as is. It is neat as sending too many contacts at once could clutter your chat feed.
As mentioned previously, this feature is still in beta version and if you want to use it quickly, sign up for being a beta tester on the Google Play. However, there is no word on when it will roll out commercially for everyone on Android or iOS. Also, know about the revamped Status feature launched recently in WhatsApp.
