We saw WhatsApp release new features one after another through its beta program in these few months. Just a day or so ago, we spotted the company is considering to replace Archived Chats with Read Later. However, the news is about a feature that WhatsApp Beta came up with last month for iOS — new Advanced Wallpaper Features for iOS beta testers. But now, the Facebook-owned messaging service has started rolling out this feature for its beta testers on Android too. The new improvements to WhatsApp wallpapers bring a lot of new features and wallpaper configuration tools to Android now. Here is a complete list of all new features and what you can do with them:
New Features for Setting Wallpapers
Different wallpaper for each chat: One interesting feature that comes with the new beta update is that users can now set a different wallpaper for each conversation. So, you can customize the wallpaper for each chat as you wish to. Apart from this, users can also edit the opacity of their wallpaper.
Similar to the iOS version of the update, the advanced wallpaper features for Android bring a variety of new wallpapers. Users can now choose between 32 new Bright Wallpapers, 29 new Dark Wallpapers, and even a custom wallpaper. They’ll also have the choice to choose from solid colors. If a user prefers to add an old wallpaper, he can pick it from the Wallpaper Archive.
Another important feature for the users who prefer a solid color as their new wallpaper is that they will now have the ability to apply WhatsApp Doodle as an overlay. On the other hand, WhatsApp Desktop users can set WhatsApp Doodle from Wallpaper Settings.
This feature is still being rolled out for Android beta testers hence if you haven’t got it, you’ll have to wait for the next update. Further, there’s no update for the web release and stable versions as of now, but we hope it’ll be available soon.
