WhatsApp beta 2.19.143 for Android brings the latest security fix for recently discovered CVE-2019-3568 vulnerability. CVE-2019-3568 is a buffer overflow issue that was found inside of the WhatsApp VOIP stack. WhatsApp is removing the ability to save profile photos. The latest change has been spotted in the WhatsApp beta versions for Android devices.

Users can also long-press a WhatsApp notification to see the received stickers in their full size. The new changes come days after WhatsApp was spotted developing a Night Mode to reduce eyestrain to some extent.

However, if you are unable to see changes in the way stickers appear in your notification center, WABetaInfo, the blog that tracks WhatsApp developments, has a trick for you. The blog recommends backing up all your chats and history and reinstalling the app, WhatsApp that is, to enable the feature and start using it as soon as possible.

WhatsApp generally provides a sharing button once you view someone’s profile photo on your Android device. Tapping the sharing button brings the option to either save the profile photo to your gallery or share it through your social media channels. However, the new change essentially removes that sharing button – leaving no on-screen option to save profile photos.

WhatsApp has released its latest updates for its Android, iOS WhatsApp Business and iOS variants. Both the Android variant and WhatsApp Business beta for iOS gets a new feature to protect your profile picture.
