How To Save Someone’s Profile Picture On The Latest WhatsApp Update

How To Save Someone’s Profile Picture On The Latest WhatsApp Update 2019: WhatsApp is a widely recognized messaging platform used globally by over 1 billion people.

The app was originally invented by a Ukrainian-American, Jan Koum. He is a high internet inventor and computer programmer.

Jan Kaum felt that him and his team, Brian Acton may not have the best management and financing for the app, therefore, decided to sell it to the world biggest social networking platform, Facebook.

Jan Kaum and his team, Brian Acton, sold WhatsApp and all its users privacy to Facebook for a whopping sum of $19.3 billion.

According to Koum, it’s the biggest and best acquisition ever.

After Facebook took over the app, everything else concerning WhatsApp was now handled and managed by Facebook.

Several updates have been released and more continued to come out in other to improve the app and user experience.

In early July, a new update was released and some features were added to the app and few things changed. Some of these features were awesome while some seem really complicated for users.

On the latest update, some noticeable bugs were fixed and few features were included;

New features on WhatsApp 2019

Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence:

With this new update, it means that users will no longer have to hit the play button each time after downloading a voice message, all voice message will play one after the other.

Blurred Downloaded Photos:

On the latest WhatsApp update, when you download any picture from a group chat or maybe your contact sent you a photo, after downloading it, the photo looks blur until you tap to open the photo before it becomes clear unlike on the old update that shows every detail of the image after downloading.

After the latest July 2019 update, there seem to be a bug or rather mistake done by WhatsApp when it comes to saving someone’s profile picture directly to your phone gallery.
