Change others profile pic

Recently people have started changing their profile pics, great. Except one of the pics is something I'd rather not be forced to look at every time I talk to this person.

I can't find a way to change their profile pic to something I want rather than what they've chosen, surely this HAS to be possible or me made possible SOON?!

What if someone puts something really offensive as their profile pic, should I be forced to look at that every time I'm talking to this person??????

    Sounds like a copyright issue, not sure if whatsapp can assist (I don’t think so) but off course you can reach out to them.

    Is our profile picture visible to everyone? like if i don’t have a person’s contact number but that person does so is my profile pic visible to her/him?

    I think he’s trying to say that you can’t change profile pictures in other applications either (like Facebook or windows messenger, MSN or whatsoever).

    I must agree with you that it would make more sense for an application linked to your phone contacts to keep it possible.

    Especially in case you have the most ugly contacts in your phone like I do

    eeh, I’m sorry, what??

    What does Facebook have to do with this? I thought this was a site about WhatsApp, not Facebook.

    On my phone, WhatsApp automatically fetches the picture I’ve designated to a specific contact in my phone book. A picture I’ve chosen because it obviously represents the person in question.

    Not being able to change others pics in an app like this seems completely retarded. Why would I want to see a picture of vomit (for example) instead of a picture of the person I’m actually talking to?

    I understand your point… But what’s the difference with i.e. Facebook?
