WhatsApp to soon add an interesting feature; cover photos

The first thing that comes to mind after reading cover photos is undoubtedly Facebook. Around a decade ago, Facebook added the cover photo update where users can add the photo of their choice to make their profile look interesting. After which, the cover photo further changed to cover photo/video option where one can also put up aesthetic videos as a cover.

A month back, WhatsApp (Facebook/Meta owned platform) announced a feature for business accounts namely collections to gather all their offerings in one file. Following this update, WhatsApp is testing another feature that is yet to be released in the upcoming updates. The new feature is also for business accounts to help them create their cover photo.

WhatsApp is currently working for this update and the development is still under progress that is why it's not even available to beta testers. But just to keep in mind, this feature will not be available to normal WhatsApp accounts; perhaps initially, only business WhatsApp users will be able to upload their cover photos.

As soon as the feature is ready to use, beta testers will see a change in their business profiles. Previously, there used to be only a display picture but now the cover of the display picture will also show a camera sign. From that option, businesses can select any photo or capture photo at the moment to upload it as their cover photo. The cover photo will be public and the users will have the access to see it depending on the account’s privacy settings.

The idea behind this update is to make the business profile look even more professional. It definitely does not affect the business growth but to make the profile a bit more appealing, visually. Cover photo can also include some key points about the brand’s products.

The screenshots provided by WABetaInfo depicts that the feature is available for iOS users but we hope WhatsApp will provide the similar update for Android users as well. It is not clear when the feature will roll out for business accounts but whenever that happens, WABetaInfo will definitely inform the users.
