2. People can view Profile pictures in the Group Chat

Another WhatsApp feature in development is the ability to set profile pictures for individual contacts in group chats. When you receive a message in a group, you’ll see the group member’s profile picture. A default profile icon will appear in chat if a group member doesn’t enable a profile picture or is unavailable due to privacy settings.
