  • WhatsApp continues to develop app customization features for its iOS client, with the latest beta build referencing new chat themes.
  • Apart from the default green shade, users may be able to pick between blue, white, pink, and purple. This color would apply to the chat bubbles and wallpaper.
  • WhatsApp has also been working on a feature that would allow iPhone users to change the app’s accent color.

Compared to Telegram, WhatsApp has always been perceived as a simpler, less customizable instant messaging (IM) app. However, that could finally change soon, as Meta is actively developing some new tools that make the app’s appearance more moldable. In the latest WhatsApp for iOS beta, there are references to an upcoming chat themes feature that could give users more control over the cosmetics.

According to WABetaInfo, the latest TestFlight version of WhatsApp for iOS gives us a first look at the upcoming chat themes feature. If Meta rolls out this addition, iPhone users will be able to customize the color of the chat bubbles and wallpaper.
