In WhatsApp friends can be recognised very quickly on the basis of a profile picture. Not only that, usually the Avatar is used as the current life status. The profile picture appears usually only in the small chat window of WhatsApp. Since the size of this profile picture is very small you may ask the following question:
How can I show the WhatsApp profile pictures of my contacts in full size?
This works unfortunately a bit cumbersome, but it works. We show in our paper, how you can enlarge WhatsApp Profile Pictures on a Android smartphone. Proceeds as follows:
Open WhatsApp and then the contact from which your want like to view a larger photo. In the WhatsApp chat window tap in the top right at the three-point icon and in the menu that opens "Show contact". You now see the contact info, in which the profile picture can be seen at the top left. Tap on this and you can see the profile picture in full size.
Tip: If you want to save the profile image of your contact, this can only be done by using the screenshot function. How do you take a screenshot with your smartphone? You can learn it by using the "Search" at the left side of this page.
You know now, how you can see the WhatsApp profile image of a contact on an Android smartphone in full size.
