WhatsApp has just announced that it’s launching a big update this week, which will help users customize the way the popular chat app looks. Here’s all that’s new.
The facebook-owned messaging platform, WhatsApp says that it is releasing an upgrade that includes all-new background wallpapers to help spruce things up on the screen. As well as adding some style to your chats there’s another advantage as WhatsApp has included a way to assign unique designs to individual chats.
This customized feature means you can have a different look for your most important chats and favorite people.
Along with adding a bit of bling to your conversions, WhatsApp also says this should help to distinguish between people and avoid sending the wrong messages in the wrong chat – that should save some blushes.
Another nice change is that you can now set a separate wallpaper in dark mode for the best chat experience. This basically means your chat wallpaper will automatically transition as your device setting switches from light to dark mode.
With WhatsApp serving over 2 billion users around the planet the chat app says it has also selected new, diverse, and iconic images of nature and architecture from around the world, as well as eye-catching new designs to suit all tastes and areas.
So that’s the news on wallpapers but there is more coming from WhatsApp with an update to stickers.
Once the update is available users will be able to easily search and find their stickers with text or emoji or browse through common sticker categories.
The World’s Health Organization’s “Together at Home” sticker pack is also now available as animated stickers.
