WhatsApp generally provides a sharing button, from where we can save the photo to gallery as well as share it on other platforms too. But now, it only works with the group profile picture and does not show any button for the individual profile picture. Although, you can still save the profile picture of any individual by taking the screenshot.
There are lots of other features that are being introduced to WhatsApp Beta daily such as Night Mode, a new layout for many emojis, getting stickers in the WhatsApp message preview and much more.
