Here’s how to be stylishly connected:
The iMessage Profile is the newly added feature for the iOs14, which can give a user full control over their name and photo displayed just like WhatsApp. This feature would make every user more connected and customized with their own Apple profile.
The users who are eligible to use this are the iPad and iPhone users running iOS 13, iPadOS 13, and higher can create their own iMessage profile. Having these updated iOs enables the users to use Animoji, Memoji, and display photos. Another good thing about this feature is that you can customize the privacy settings and allow contacts only.
iMessage Profile: Here are the steps
- Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone or iPad and go to the “Messages” section.
- Tap the “Share Name And Photo” option.
- Select the “Choose Name And Photo” button on the iMessage profile setup screen.
- If you see a display picture for your iCloud profile or a Memoji, create a new display picture, tap the three-dot Menu button.
- Tap the Photos button then choose the desired photo.
- You can also apply a filter to the photo if you want.
- Tap the “Done” button to proceed.
- Now, select the “Continue” button. Choose the “Use” option if you want to use the photo for your Apple ID display.
- For privacy confirmation, “Share Automatically” section, you can choose the “Contacts Only” or “Always Ask” option.
- “Always Ask” requires the Messages app to ask you if you want to share your name and photo with the person you’re having a conversation with.
- While the “Contacts Only” automatically shares your updates with people in your Apple contacts. Select a choice and tap the “Done” button. After that, your iMessage profile is complete.
The company is also testing a range of extra features for iMessage, and it could include the new functionality in the iOS 14 update. There’s a new Slack-like mention system that will allow users to tag contacts with their names. There will also be a group chat that will make it possible to mute the conversation but receive push notifications when direct mentions are included.
