WhatsApp for iOS is working to introduce an iMessage-like group icon editor. With that, administrators won’t have to choose a photo or leave the default blank cover.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp beta version is rolling this new group icon editor that will allow you to generate an icon by choosing a background colour and an emoji, or sticker.

If you’re running the beta version of WhatsApp, just follow these steps:

* Open Group Info and tap the camera icon to change the group icon;

* If you see a new option called “Emoji & Stickers,” it means you can start using this feature.

Now, if the option isn’t appearing in your account, it might take a while for WhatsApp to roll it out to more beta testers. In the future, the app will release this feature to all users. Take a look at this function:

Recently, the company launched end-to-end encrypted cloud backups for iOS and Android. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared the news in a Facebook post:

"We’re adding another layer of privacy and security to WhatsApp: an end-to-end encryption option for the backups people choose to store in Google Drive or iCloud. WhatsApp is the first global messaging service at this scale to offer end-to-end encrypted messaging and backups, and getting there was a really hard technical challenge that required an entirely new framework for key storage and cloud storage across operating systems."–9to4mac.com
