However, if you have your “Read receipts” option turned on, you can see if someone has read your messages or not. This is indicated by blue double ticks beside the message.

You can choose to put up your own picture as your WhatsApp DP—a selfie or any other picture of your choice. Some people put up pictures of their families or nice group photos too. You may also put up some other kind of art that reflects your personality. Or you may put up a quote or a meme too, depending upon your whim.

There are many websites that offer free images to download and use as your WhatsApp DP. Check out Pinterest, or even a simple Google image search based on the theme you are looking for will give you plenty of interesting options to choose from.
