Although the new WhatsApp beta update for iOS has removed the ability to save the profile picture to the gallery but the users can still save the profile picture of a group they are part of.

For Android, WhatsApp v2.19.143 beta was rolled out two weeks ago which had removed the option to save the profile photo to the gallery.

Now, WhatsApp v beta version for iOS has brought this feature to the iPhones and the iPads. WhatsApp has also changed the audio coding format for the iOS users. Earlier, WhatsApp used Opus voice message format which it changed to M4A in the new beta update. But the audio format change is available only for the iOS beta version of WhatsApp and the Android beta version is yet to receive this feature.

To download the new beta version of WhatsApp for iOS the users would need to enrol themselves to the beta programme of WhatsApp. But if they are already a part of the beta programme then they can go to the Apple App Store and download the beta version of the application.
