Highlights of the Story

  • WhatsApp could enable the new feature in future builds.
  • This new feature is not enabled for beta users yet.
  • The same feature was reportedly spotted on iOS as well.

There are a lot of updates and new features coming in for WhatsApp this past year. Now, a new feature was spotted in a previous iOS beta version is also under development for Android users as well. This new feature will allow users to change wallpapers of individual chats.

It will allow users to choose different backgrounds for different chats, based on the theme used in the app. However, it won’t be available to users even when if they are using the beta version. On the other hand, we can expect it to enable the same for beta users in the future.

This is coming as an official WhatsApp app that provides Wallpapers for the social messaging platform. This app is listed on Google Play and was last updated in 2011. Once the new Wallpaper feature goes live, WhatsApp will likely update this app with more options to choose from.

For instance, the iOS version allowed the user to select different wallpapers for different chats. It will make its way to android Beta testers soon.

In earlier reports, the social media app is also working on a Storage Usage redesign as well. It is a new storage bar at the top that offers details about the portion of space consumed by the media files shared over WhatsApp. 

In addition, there will be a Suggested clean up option that will list forwarded and large files in a thumbnail view. This option will help users in reviewing and deleting them to free up some space. This is also under-development right now and will roll out soon.

WhatsApp is expected to enable the same for beta users in the future, followed by rollout for everyone.
