Currently you work on remote profile pictures (like WhatsApp do).
I would like still use my local profile pictures I set in the local phone book (like signal do).
As I said in a other thread before, I pick my chats and contacts by there profile picture.
This works only if I set a explicit picture for a contact.
By using remote pictures it can change everytime (somtimes a dog, a cat, a comic, a concert ticket…)
I know, many people like the behaviour of WhatsApp. But there are also people (e.g.me) who don’t like it.
So I think a option to switch between local and remote pictures would satisfy both groups.
