WhatsApp will soon make major changes to notifications on the iOS version of its application. Indeed, the profile picture of the correspondent can be displayed directly in the notifications. A way to even more quickly identify who is trying to reach us.
WhatsApp has never really stopped adding new features. On a regular basis, beta testers reveal the existence of new features and upcoming changes to the instant messaging application. Recently, WhatsApp has integrated the possibility of listening to voice messages before sending them, while the interface dedicated to this feature has been completely revised, especially to facilitate navigation. Fingerprint lock has also come recently on WhatsApp.
However and as revealed by our partners from the exclusive site WABetaInfo, The next update of WhatsApp is clearly related to the iOS version of the application, More specifically, the changes made will be at the notification level. In the latest beta, WhatsApp makes it easier to identify the person who is trying to communicate with you.
WhatsApp on iOS is catching up with the Android version
Actually, Profile picture now displayed next to message in notifications, Profile photos with notifications can be displayed not only for individual chats, but also during group chats. Since this new feature uses the API included in iOS 15, Profile pictures in notifications are currently only available to beta testers.
However, being a member of the WhatsApp beta testing program on iOS is not enough to access this new functionality. Actually, there is no guarantee that you will be able to take advantage of it, WhatsApp activates it on the server side only for certain user groups, As a reminder, this feature has been available to Android users for some time now and there is a simple and clear way to know at a glance who is behind this notification.
Like any feature in the testing phase, it will probably take some time to arrive on the iOS version of the application. As a reminder, a bug I noticed recently caused apps to crash on the iPhone. The problem is believed to be with Meta’s servers. An update is still pending.
