WhatsDP: Pulling display pictures from WhatsApp to your contacts

Firefox extension.

The second brain child of Appify. It started as an app idea, turns out it was impossible to do it right (as in without some weird hacks — how do you even scan a QR code on the same phone?!). The cleanest way was with a browser extension.

  1. You need to export all your contacts to vCards.
  2. Run the extension (like the video)
  3. Delete all your current contacts, and add the one you just downloaded from this extension — this is the scariest steps, but don’t worry… you already have a backup of your existing contacts. If you don’t delete first, you’ll end up with duplicates.

And you’re done.
