WhatsApp new Features: WhatsApp has reportedly started rolling out the first beta feature for iOS users by 2022. According to a report, with the new feature, iPhone users will be able to see the profile images of the senders along with message notifications. As per the screenshot shared with the report, when you receive a new message from an individual user or group, the new feature will allow you to see a small photo of the sender in the notification.
The report further reveals that this feature is available to only a few beta testers with the iOS 15 operating system as the feature uses the iOS 15 API. The Facebook-owned platform will reportedly roll out the feature to more users with the upcoming updates. As this feature is still in beta phase, WhatsApp may face some issues while displaying profile photo for notifications, but these issues will be resolved when the feature is rolled out to the public.
