WhatsApp new feature: Profile pics within groups

krishna murthy
According to reports, WhatsApp is working on a feature that will make recognising participants in a group chat easier.
Currently, WhatsApp only shows the phone number/name of the participant along with their message.
The application will introduce profile pictures to group chats to clarify the sender’s identity.
In case a user doesn't have a profile picture or it's not shown to everyone, the default profile icon from WhatsApp will show up.
This new feature will come in handy for users that are part of large WhatsApp groups and don’t have all contact names saved in their contact list.
The WhatsApp profile photo will accompany the text bubble in the chat.
The feature is currently in the development phase for iOS users of WhatsApp.
