How To Change Your Friend's Profile Pictures On WhatsApp

Published

on

If you want to change your WhatsApp friends’ profile

picture on your phone to play a little prank on them,

then read on. It may be a little bit juvenile, I’ll admit,

but nothing beats the look on your friend’s face when

you pull one over on them.

It’s actually really easy to do. Whenever you open

someone’s profile picture full-screen, the app actually

saves the image. These images then get saved with

your contact’s phone number as the file name in your

WhatsApp folder. So all you need to do is go into your

file manager and replace the existing profile picture

with one of your choices.

1. Assuming you want to revert to the original profile

picture, you want to save a copy of it first. I’m using

ES File Explorer for this tutorial, but the process is

pretty much the same no matter what app you’re

using. If you don’t have one already, ES is a good

choice.

2. Navigate to the following folder: /device/sdcard/

WhatsApp/Profile Pictures. Here you will see the

profile pictures that the app has saved. If you don’t

see your friend’s picture in here, go back to WhatsApp

and open it. All you have to do is tap their name at

the top of a chat and then on their profile picture icon

in the screenshot below. Once it has loaded full-

screen it will appear in the Profile Pictures folder.

Once you’ve viewed a friend’s profile picture it will be

saved by WhatsApp..

3. In the Profile Pictures folder, find your friend’s

image and long press it, then choose Copy from the

menu. You can paste it anywhere you like, but you’re

going to want to copy the file name (your friend’s

phone number) before we go on.

In a file manager, go to /device/sdcard/WhatsApp/

Profile Pictures to see your profile pics.

4. Now, find a picture you want to replace your friend’s

profile picture with and resize it to be 640 x 640

pixels: the standard size for WhatsApp profile pics.

5. Move the new profile picture to the Profile Picture

folder and rename it with your friend’s phone number.

To rename the picture, just long press the picture and

select Rename from the menu.

Once you’ve pasted your new picture into the folder,

rename it with your friend’s phone number.

6. Now, when you go into WhatsApp and tap your

friend’s name and then their profile picture, the full

screen image will be the one you saved.

The look on

Ada’s face when I showed her this was

Horrifying !

I don’t yet know of a way to change the small profile

icon as well, but this is still a great way to freak your

friends out. Just go up to them and say ”I think your

WhatsApp account got hacked…” or ”What’s up with

your WhatsApp profile picture?” and show them your

phone. If it works like it did for me with Ada , it’s well

worth the five minute investment to make it happen

How To Change Your Friend's Profile Pictures On WhatsApp 12

Huawei’s P Smart line already has its 2020 member planned. The phone has recently been certified with 3 cameras by TENAA and now some renders have come up which show us the possible look of the phone. Images also include the MatePad Pro tablet.

Regarding the design, it seems that P Smart 2020 will not present anything new. We still have the droplet notch, a glossy back cover, and the triple chamber configuration. Specifications will be a slight upgrade from 2019.

  • Kirin 810 Processor
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 128 GB internal storage
  • 48 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP Main Camera
  • 16MP front camera
  • 3,900 mAh battery

In addition to memory upgrades, P Smart is expected to bring improved cameras and the inclusion of an ultra-wide lens finally. If Huawei wants to avenge this mobile phone in the Portuguese market, it will have to compete with Samsung’s A line, which features very interesting equipment.

MatePad Pro is a pseudo rival to the iPad

The MatePad Pro, also known as MediaPad M7, will be the brand’s next tablet. The tablet has varied colors, bringing some variety to the tablet market, which usually features equipment in black, blue and silver.

We also have a rear dual camera and a “hole” design on the screen, where is the front camera. The tablet comes with a USB-C port, biometric reader under the glass and a pen holder and keyboard case.

However, this tablet will have the same problem as the rest of the market: the operating system. Although versatile Android is a limited system when it comes to productivity. The same cannot be said of the iPad which with the new iOS 13 represents a true piece of work technology.

As long as Android stays as it is, tablets will remain big phones. Huawei does not seem to include major applications or operating system changes to make its tablets more attractive, as Samsung, for example.

Now, although not officially introduced by the brand, it is now available for purchase from a Spanish online store for just € 199.94 . I recall that the same smartphone was spotted last week at the Giztop online store with a price of € 179.10 .

It is important to note that in the case of the Spanish store, they are selling the global variant, unlike in Giztop. It is currently only available in gray. For those interested in the blue version, they will need to register with an email account to be notified when it becomes available.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T Specifications

When compared to Redmi Note 8, this new model has only one new feature, support for NFC. Although it may seem like a minor implementation, it is a much desired tool today. Moreover, it maintains the specifications, which continue to offer excellent value for money.
