WhatsApp latest update on Android and iOS brings some refreshing chat customization options. Users can now set different wallpapers for chats with different contacts. This is not only fun but it can be an instant indicator a user is chatting with the right contact.
Different wallpapers can also be assigned for light and dark mode settings. With the new update, wallpapers will sync with the phone’s system settings and automatically transition when it switches from light to dark mode. There are also now more colour options for the default doddle wallpaper.
Users can now search for stickers with text or emoji but creators must make some minor tweaks to make this work. “As we start to roll this out, we encourage sticker app creators to tag their stickers with emojis moving forward,” Facebook tells The Verge, “so their stickers are searchable for WhatsApp users.” Creators will now have to link the emoji back to words.
The updates are rolling out already and should get to everyone this week.
