California: Instant messaging application WhatsApp is soon going to introduce a new feature for its users after which users will be able to put alternative photos on their profile. The purpose of introducing this feature by the company is to improve the privacy of the users.
According to the WhatsApp beta info, the option to choose alternative photos will further improve the privacy of WhatsApp users. Currently users can choose from four options for their profile picture which include ‘Everyone’, ‘Contacts Only’, ‘Except Contacts’ and ‘None’.
However, using this new feature, users will be able to put an alternate picture and name on their profile and have the option of who can see their profile and who can’t.
It should be noted that this feature is in its testing stages and is currently not even released to beta users.
Also, WhatsApp is testing a feature to manage events in group chats. Using this feature you will be able to create and coordinate events directly with the app.
