Users will have to open a group chat to know if the feature is available for their WhatsApp account, WABetaInfo reports.
The new feature will help the users to better identify group members by showing the profile icons and make it easier to recognise the sender of the message in group conversations.

The feature will be useful for group members who share similar names or do not have profile pictures.
The default empty profile photo appears if a profile photo is unavailable or hidden due to privacy settings and it is highlighted using the same colour as the contact name.
The new feature is available for some beta testers at the time of writing and could be used after installing the latest update of WhatsApp beta for Android on the Play Store, and it is expected to roll out to more users over the coming weeks, the report said.
