Group icon editor

WhatsApp has recently introduced new modifications in drawing tools, editing sections, contact card layout, group info modification, and more. Now, WhatsApp is sending a new tool that will give you the possibility to customized group profiles.

In the era of instant messaging, we all have many groups where we add contacts from the same fields such as a group for school friends, college friends, coaching group, family group, office group, etc. Sometimes, we don’t have suitable profile images for the time being just after creating the group.

For further convenience, WhatsApp is adding a group icon editor so that you can add a temporary image profile. Let’s first take a look at the preview image.
