WhatsApp is also going to be rolling out the feature to WhatsApp Business for Android. Meanwhile, WhatsApp is also working to launch the Community feature in the next update, which will provide greater control for the group admins on the platform. The features are not finalized yet for WhatsApp Business users on Android, while they are currently being tested on the desktop client.

A report suggests a user would be able to customize their cover photo in the next WhatsApp Desktop beta update when setting up a business profile and adding a header picture. When some beta users have configured the cover photo, either by tapping on Tap on Add Now (or from their Business profile), the cover photo appears whenever other WhatsApp accounts access a company’s chat information.
