WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging app, has been testing a new feature that could soon replace unknown phone numbers with usernames. This new feature was recently leaked and has garnered much attention in the tech world.

According to reports, the new feature would allow users to create a unique username that could be shared with others instead of their phone number. This would give users more control over their privacy and personal information, as they could choose who they share their username with and avoid having to give out their phone number to people they don’t know.

The leaked screenshot shows that the new feature would allow users to search for contacts using their username instead of their phone number. This could make it easier to find and connect with people on the app, especially for those who have changed their phone number or have multiple phone numbers.

WhatsApp has not yet officially announced this new feature or when it will be rolled out. However, the leaked screenshot suggests that it is currently being tested and could be available to users in the near future.

This new feature is just one of many that WhatsApp has been working on to improve user experience and privacy. In recent months, the app has introduced several new features, including disappearing messages, multi-device support, and new privacy settings.
