“This feature has been released to some beta testers only on iOS 15 since it uses iOS 15 APIs. Do not be surprised if it’s not available for your WhatsApp account, because WhatsApp is planning to activate this feature for more accounts at a later date. At the moment, WhatsApp may experience some issues adding profile photos to specific notifications: since this is a beta feature, we should expect new updates that improve the feature soon,” WABetaInfo mentioned.

A few features baking under the oven includes- a new time limit to delete messages for everyone in groups, message reactions with emojis, transcribing voice memos, among a few.

In addition, WhatsApp is also said to be working on a feature ‘Businesses Nearby’ that will show users all the businesses restaurants, grocery stores, clothing stores and more, when they look for something on the app. The company had earlier confirmed multi-device support that will enable users to use their WhatsApp from up to four different devices without having their primary device nearby. The feature arrived on WhatsApp Beta for Android and is expected to roll out to the public in the coming days.
