Are you already sick of receiving WhatsApp’s excessively frequent updates? Because they won’t stop pouring in, I advise against doing so. WhatsApp aims to be the greatest instant messaging service available, but they also want to make sure your favourite programme works properly for you.
Every time WhatsApp is updated, new features are added to increase the app’s usability, effectiveness, and security. To put it simply, WhatsApp updates primarily serve the interests of users like you and me.
WHATSAPP WILL UNVEIL PROFILE ICON FEATURE.
Speaking of advantages, a new update is on the way to make life much simpler. WhatsApp aims to make contact identification as simple and quick as possible for users. In group conversations, the business recently announced an upgrade that substitutes usernames for phone numbers. Custom display photos are a feature that WhatsApp wishes to improve.
The messaging platform is reportedly working on an upgrade for version 126.96.36.199, according to WABetainfo. Profile Icons is the rumoured name of the new feature, which beta testers may already try out in group conversations.
Although the beta for this feature has already been launched for iOS users, it is still being developed for Android users.
WHATSAPP’S PROFILE ICON FEATURE: HOW TO USE
Users must first open group conversations in order to use this functionality. You’ll notice that everyone who has hidden their profile images or doesn’t have any won’t have personalised profile pictures thanks to this functionality. This will make it simpler to recognise each participant in a group chat.
Groups where some people share the same name would be one situation where this functionality would be very helpful. It will be challenging to distinguish between users with the identical identities because WhatsApp is replacing phone numbers with usernames. The Profile Icon feature will make it easier to recognise these members.
