Tech: Whatsapp brought a new feature, now you will be able to see anyone's profile photo inside group chats!


WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature for some beta testers that allows users to view profile photos within group chats on a desktop.


According to a WABetaInfo report, this feature will help users identify group members who do not have their phone numbers or have the same name.

If a group member has not set a profile photo or if it is hidden due to privacy restrictions, the default profile icon appears and is highlighted using the same color as the contact name.

The new feature will soon be released on WhatsApp beta for Android as well.


The messaging platform started working on this new feature for WhatsApp Desktop Beta in October.

The company plans to introduce the feature on desktop and iOS beta to help group members better recognize others in their groups, the report added.
