WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned messaging app is not allowing users to save profile pictures of individuals on their devices with the latest Android beta update.
WABetaInfo web portal tweeted on Wednesday, "WhatsApp has removed the possibility to save profile pictures in latest Android beta updates and WhatsApp Business beta for iOS 126.96.36.199".
The feature was spotted by an Indian based tester who went on and tweeted WABetainfo inquiring about the update. Swarup Mondal tweeted, "In the latest beta version 2.19.319, the option to save profile pictures is no longer there. It is only there for groups. Please confirm if this is a bug or it is going to remain that way? (Android 9)".
WABetaInfo later confirmed that WhatsApp wasn't allowing people to save group icons and details about the public roll-out feature remain unknown for now.
In April, WhatsApp was known to be testing an 'Authentication' feature that wouldn't allow users from taking screenshots of private conversations.
