Hey all

Now that whatsapp add the feature to save contacts profile photos to phone, is it possible to make an apk or something to sync them with the contacts on the phone?

On my whatsapp, if the contact has no whatsapp profile photo, it shows the phone contact photo.

If you open a contact in whatsapp and press the photo you can save it.
So I believe it is possible to make an app that opens all those photos and uses them for the android contacts.

If you have a rooted device, I've made an app that can do it automatically for you:

For now, it's not on the play store and there is no update mechanism, but I will try to make one in future versions.

Try downloading via another web browser or PC.
I've downloaded via Chrome Dev on Nexus 5x with Android 7.0, and it works fine...
The APK is ok.
If you wish, here's a different link (of the current APK) :

You mean this:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ntactphotosync
?
If so, I tried it in the past, and when I did, it only allows to manually sync : you need to go to the contact info screen of WhatsApp, share the image, and choose to who to set it.
Not only that, but on later versions of WhatsApp, even this didn't work.
Plus, this app messed up with my contacts each time I changed a rom and restored it.

If you talk about this app:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oid.wcps&hl=en
- then it also doesn't really work. It opens WhatsApp and tells you to open the large screen page of the contact, and that's it. Doesn't do anything with it.

My solution is fully automatic, using root.
The only other app I know about that syncs well is Sync.Me, which syncs with a multiple social networks, but not with WhatsApp (and it has a good reason that it's not included).

Sorry I didn't try it yet on 7.1 .
In which phase doesn't it work? What happens when you launch it?
What exactly is the issue?
Can you please PM me or write about it on the thread of the app:

Just tested on Nexus 5x with 7.1 of Pixel rom (from here) . Works fine for me.

Which device do you have that it doesn't work ? What exactly doesn't work?
