According to the screenshot from the report, users will be able to search for contacts by typing their username in the search bar in future builds. This will remove the need to input phone numbers and provide a privacy-friendly way to find people in the app.

This additional layer of privacy will allow users to interact with people without having to reveal their mobile numbers, according to the report. It will also provide anonymity as users will not have to reveal their phone numbers when interacting with others. It can be useful to manage the contact information sharing on the application. For example, instead of sharing phone numbers on the app, users will have the option of sharing usernames.
