The meta-owned popular instant messaging app, WhatsApp, is rolling out the first update of the year to welcome the new year; as per the reports from WaBetaInfo, this new feature is only accessible to iOS beta testers. WhatsApp will likely release this feature to everyone once its bugs are removed. The new features carry out an intelligent function that allows the user to see the profile picture of the sender in the system notifications, as we mentioned before, this update is only available in iOS.

WhatsApp development tracker, WaBetaInfo, has projected the information and a screenshot in their official blog post. WhatsApp is prepping up to enable this feature for every account soon. As this new feature is under testing for now, the instant messaging app may encounter some errors while showing profile pictures in a specific notification, so don’t worry if you cannot access the feature; you will get it soon with an enhanced system configuration.

With the new features out of the way, WhatsApp is looking forward to an extraordinary journey. The meta-owned messaging app will likely exhibit more exciting features to offer users a memorable experience, from giving emoji reactions to the messages to transcribing voice memos. WhatsApp prudently modernized the apps with new updates and fidgety the previous year.

Additional features to the app will make it convenient for the users and the company. The reaction with emoji was much appreciated when the firm brought this super cool feature to Instagram. Similar kinds of features are arriving at WhatsApp, this feature allows the user to react to the messages instead of typing a long paragraph, howbeit communication between people started to become less, with this feature it would become less than before. In addition to this, WhatsApp beta will also have advertisements within the apps, considering the change from Facebook to Meta. The main idea of this feature is to monetize through WhatsApp; it might not be the best feature for WhatsApp as users wouldn’t prefer inappropriate or relentless advertisements.
