Messenger-Like Feature in WhatsApp for iOS & Web Users

WhatsApp has been surprising its more than two billion active users with new features every day for quite some time now. It has again surprised its users by rolling out a Messenger-like feature for its users. Read this article to learn more about this feature.

In the last few updates, Meta-owned WhatsApp has introduced new features like communities, in-chat polls, call links and message-yourself to make the experience better for its users. In the latest update, WhatsApp has introduced a Facebook Messenger-like feature this time which will be helpful for the ones who spend the maximum of their time in groups.

Initially, you could see the name of the sender in the group but with this update, you will also be able to see the profile picture of the sender along with the name. Just like you used to see the users’ faces in Facebook Messenger, you will be able to identify the sender by the picture.

This feature has been introduced for iOS users and some web users. There is no news about Android users so they need to be patient with this feature.

In case the user or the sender does not have a profile or display picture, then a human-like avatar will show in the place reserved for the display picture. If you click on the picture in the group, a detailed card will appear on your screen which will contain the personal information of the sender. This information will include details like the contact number, name and other details according to the privacy set by the sender.


In this article, we learnt about the new feature rolled out by WhatsApp which is just like Facebook. Now you will be able to see the profile picture of the sender in a group along with the name. This feature is available for iOS and web users only so Android users will have to wait for it.

I hope you like the article and you will share it with your friends and family.
