Photo save feature for people and groups is removed in the WhatsApp beta. The information came through the WABetainfo website confirming the rumors via a post on their Twitter.
Maybe you did not know because you never tried to do this, but in the WhatsApp application, it was possible from the beginning to save the profile photo of the people and groups in the gallery of the cell phone. But this feature is about to end according to information from users of the beta version of the app.
The information came through the WABetainfo website confirming the rumors via a post on their Twitter. This way the feature was removed from the latest beta for the Android operating system (in iOS the functionality ceased to exist in WhatsApp 22.214.171.124 ).
WhatsApp has removed the possibility to save profile pictures in the latest Android beta updates and WhatsApp Business beta for iOS 126.96.36.199. You can save group icons. I do not know why they decided to remove this feature (screenshots exist 😅)
At the time of this publication, Whatsapp has not issued any official statement about what occurred to justify what caused the company to make such a decision. But it is assumed to be due to users’ privacy reasons.
Of course, nothing prevents the person from realizing a “print screen” of the screen of his smartphone and saving the desired image. That is, it did not affect the usability of the application at all.
It was discovered a few days ago also about signs of dark mode (night mode or dark mode) that should soon arrive for Whatsapp. However, we do not yet have a date that is near or necessary for the release of the appeal to the public.
