Before WhatsApp had a share button when we view profile pictures of contacts. And when we tap on it we get an option to save that picture or share it directly. But now the share button is not there, as we confirmed on WhatsApp Beta for Android version 2.19.143. However, the feature to save the profile picture still exists for WhatsApp groups. Now, If you want to save a profile picture you can still use your phones screenshot option.
Earlier this week, WhatsApp was spotted testing Night Mode for the app which is likely to help users reduce eye strain. However, Night mode is still not available for even the newer beta builds for Android. We can still expect WhatsApp to release that update soon.
To check the latest features, you can download the latest WhatsApp Beta for Android version from Google Play store or download the APK file from sites like APK Mirror and install on your phone.
It seems that WhatsApp is trying hard to enhance their overall user experience. And, we can’t wait to see what new features will WhatsApp try to bring on the table.
