How to put a different background to each WhatsApp chat

Now, you can put a different background for each WhatsApp chat. So you can do it step by step.

Finally possible customize each WhatsApp chat individually. It has taken time, but the messaging app has introduced the possibility of put a WhatsApp background to each chat individually, rather than having to use the same in all conversations.

In addition, the company has gone further, giving the option of set a different background depending on whether you are using light or dark theme in the application, since not all images will combine equally well with the theme that is being used at any given time.

This feature was first available in the beta version of the WhatsApp app for Android, but little by little it will begin to reach users of the stable edition of the messaging app, thus adding to the rest of the WhatsApp customization options and functions available for some time.

The process to change the background of a WhatsApp chat is simple. Now, it is no longer necessary to go to the application settings to put a single background for all chats - although this option is still available -: instead, it will be possible choose a different background for every conversation.

To do so, you just have to follow these steps:

  1. Open WhatsApp and go to the conversation where you want to customize the background.
  2. Tap the three-dot menu icon in the upper right.
  3. Tap the "Wallpaper" option.
  4. You will see a screen to customize the wallpaper. You can choose the brightness level of the image, or change it for another if you tap on the "Change" button.
  5. When you touch the option to change, you will see a screen with different categories of wallpapers. You can also choose a photo from your gallery, or remove the background.

That's it. When you have selected and customized an image, this will be established as the background only in the chat you have chosen.

If you want to choose a different background for each chatYou just have to repeat the same procedure in each of the WhatsApp conversations that you want to customize.

Choose a different background for each theme of the application

As we mentioned at the beginning, WhatsApp also gives the option to choose a different chat background depending on the theme of the application being used: light or dark.

To change the wallpaper corresponding to each of the themes, these are the steps you must follow:

  1. First, choose the theme for which you want to change the background. You can activate or deactivate the dark theme of WhatsApp from the application settings, in the "Chats" section.
  2. In that same section, tap on "Wallpaper".
  3. Depending on the theme you have chosen, you will see "Wallpaper (dark theme)" or "Wallpaper (light theme)" at the top.
  4. To choose a background that will be applied to the chats when you use the chosen theme, tap on "change" and select the background you want to use.
  5. Then change the theme of the app and select another wallpaper.

So, each of the themes will have its own corresponding wallpaper. Keep in mind, of course, that these settings will not overwrite your preferences for each individual chat, so if you have customized the background of the conversations previously, you will continue to see the personalized backgrounds in each chat regardless of the background you have chosen for each topic.
