WhatsApp Web and Mobile App Photo Sync Bug:

The second bug is related to WhatsApp Web’s photo syncing abilities. Whenever you delete a picture that was sent via WhatsApp mobile version, the picture appears blurred in WhatsApp and can’t be viewed.

But, things are a bit buggy in WhatsApp Web. Even after deleting the picture from WhatsApp mobile, the picture can be still viewed via WhatsApp Web. This points out the fact that mobile and web version aren’t synced properly.

WhatsApp’s web client is just a few days old and such bugs are expected to be detected. We hope that WhatsApp will fix these errors pretty soon and improve the user experience.
