Another New WhatsApp Feature On Cards

This WhatsApp news comes close on the heels of spotting a feature related to group chats. It was tipped that WhatsApp is catching up with its rivals such as Telegram with a new feature that will let group chats display the profile pictures of members next to their messages.

The profile picture on the group chats will help in identifying the participants in large groups. Notably, it will display the profile picture only for incoming messages and members will not be able to see their own picture in the group conversation. The feature is limited only to group conversations and it remains to be seen if the same will make its way to the individual chats.

In a separate report, WhatsApp is claimed to be working on a feature that will let users view the status of their friends within the chat list. It can be disabled by muting the status updates in the Android version of the app.
