WhatsApp has slightly changed its user interface. You can see it in the new status feature. So you might have noticed that the Contacts tab dissapeared in the main menu bar. If you want to see a list of all your contacts that use WhatsApp, you will need a little trick.
Show contacts in WhatsApp
In earlier WhatsApp version it was possible to access your contacts via the Contacts tab in the main menu bar. You just had to tap Contacts at the bottom. This feature disappeared with the latest WhatsApp update.
Now you have to open the Chats in WhatsApp to see all your contacts.
Then tap the icon for “new message” in the top right.
It will open a list of your iPhone contacts that are using WhatsApp, so that you can contact them via the messenger. All other contacts, who are not using WhatsApp, are hidden.
Tap a contact to start a new chat with this person or to display the existing chat.
