Optional setting of profile pictures for non-DC contacts.
If one of these contacts later hopefully installs DC, the image should be replaced automatically.
For non-DC contacts, letters with colored backgrounds are displayed as profile pictures.
Maybe other DC users feel the same way.
Unfortunately, most of my contacts do not use DC.
Despite this, I can communicate with everyone without any problems.
That’s what makes DC so awesome.
The only thing that bothers me a bit visually are the missing profile pictures.
So it would be great if you could add some yourself.
Same situation for me.
I’d like even a setting like show/hide profile picture, for all the chats or better for the non-Delta contacts. In this last case you see directly who is using DC.
Colors are boring…
What would be the benefit of that?
For my part, I think it’s better if you don’t notice it immediately.
For encryption purps!
But I agree that I wanna set the image (and even be able to override the people who have set an ugly picture).
if you are using android, adding the contacts to your address book and setting an image there and they will show in Delta Chat then
I am using the iOS version. But thanks for the tip.
That’s right, it would be better if you could basically set your own profile pictures.
