The new report suggests that WhatsApp is working on cover photos where you will be able to change your cover photos frequently just like we do at Facebook and Twitter social media platforms, but this feature is not coming to your WhatsApp standard/individual accounts.
According to WABetaInfo, the cover photos are coming to WhatsApp Business accounts and will be rolled out in future updates, but now the feature is in the development phase.
“WhatsApp is working on a new feature that allows setting a cover photo for your profile. Actually, this feature is under development on WhatsApp Business, and it’s not planned for standard WhatsApp user accounts. When the feature is enabled for beta testers, there will be some changes in your Business profile settings,” WABetaInfo wrote into their blog post.
“As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp is planning to introduce a camera button in your Business Settings: you can select a photo or take a new one to use as the cover photo. When other people (including standard WhatsApp user accounts) visit your business profile, they will be able to see your cover photo. Even if the screenshot is taken from WhatsApp Business for iOS, WhatsApp is planning to introduce the same feature on WhatsApp Business for Android as well.”
