Profile Photos Will Now Appear in Whatsapp Group Chats

WhatsApp for iOS brings another nice feature that users will be able to take advantage of in the near future. The app plans to bring iMessage-like profile photos to group chats to make chats more personal and also let you know who you’re talking to.

As seen by WABetaInfo in WhatsApp beta 22.18.0.72 for iOS , this new version gives a hint about this upcoming feature. Unfortunately, it’s under development so it’s not ready to be rolled out to beta users, but the new report offers a preview of what the feature will be all about.

It’s Now Easier to Distinguish People in Group Chats

With this update, WhatsApp plans to introduce a long-requested feature: profile photos of group participants . When this feature is rolled out to beta testers, a future update to the app will show profile photos of other group participants alongside all incoming messages in the group chat .

Besides this feature, WhatsApp is still working on the ability to create polls for groups. In recent months, the company has rolled out larger groups, the ability to voice chat with more participants, and a new Community feature.
