This is bugging me about WhatsApp. My contact list in the WhatsApp app is presumably the list of contacts I have in my phone book who have WhatsApp. I can see their picture and status if they have one. But their actual usernames are as I have inputted them into my phonebook.
However, I'm sure it should appear as they have chosen their names to be (because I can choose how I want my name to be in the edit profile section). It may seem trivial, but I'm worried I'm missing something or have done something wrong.
How does WhatsApp show the name in the contact list?
P.S. I have a Samsung Galaxy S2, Android 4.1.2.
