WhatsApp, how to change the background of chats

On WhatsApp you can customize each conversation by choosing a different background to your Image Gallery. Here's how to do it on Android and iOS

Sick of the anonymous background present on all WhatsApp conversations? Did you know that you can change it with an image present on your smartphone? WhatsApp, in addition to the many features it offers to send images and videos within chats, also allows you to customize the appearance of conversations.

For each WhatsApp chat, users have the ability to change the background image and choose the photo that best suits the conversation. However, it is not possible to choose a background image for every WhatsApp conversation, but you need to set the same photo for all conversations. There are two procedures you can follow to customize WhatsApp chats: in both cases you will complete the task in just under five minutes. Here's how to do it on Android and iOS.

How to change the background of WhatsApp chats

To customize the background of a chat on WhatsApp the procedure to follow is very simple. First you need to launch the application and enter the WhatsApp conversation in which you want to change the background. At this point you must press on the icon with three vertical dots in the upper right corner (in the iOS version are in the lower right corner) and from the menu that opens you must click on the item Background. A screen will appear that will allow us to choose between different images: the photos in the Gallery of the smartphone, the WhatsApp Wallpaper Library or solid colors. Once you choose the photo, you'll have to press the Set button and it will appear as the background of all WhatsApp chats.

There is also an alternative procedure to customize the background of WhatsApp chats. The end result is the same, but the steps you need to follow to change the background are different. First you have to open the application, press on the icon with three vertical dots in the top right corner and then on Settings (on iOS there is directly the Settings icon in the bottom right corner). At this point you'll have to select Chat and then Background: a menu will open that will let you choose between the images saved in the Gallery or the Backgrounds Library offered by WhatsApp. Once you have decided on the image, you'll have to press the Set button. That way the photo will be present as a background on all WhatsApp conversations.
