How to set custom wallpapers for WhatsApp chats

One of the easiest ways to tell a chat apart is to use a unique background. That way, you won’t end up sending accidental messages. Here’s how to set a custom wallpaper for individual WhatsApp chats on iPhone and Android.

You can give a chat (group chat or individual chat) a custom background quite easily. You can select one of the built-in WhatsApp options or you can use your own photo.

Unlike Instagram, WhatsApp’s custom wallpaper feature is not synchronized between all users. Therefore, both parties can have their own custom chat background for the same conversation.

Set custom wallpaper for chats on WhatsApp for Android

To get started, open the WhatsApp app on your Android smartphone. Here, go to the “Chat” section and open a WhatsApp conversation.

  • Tap the menu button from the toolbar and choose the “Background” option.
  • Here you will see a couple of options called “Bright”, “Dark”, “Solid Colors” and “My Photos”.
  • Browse photos here and tap a photo to preview it.
  • Then, tap on the “Set Wallpaper” option.
  • In the pop-up dialog, be sure to select the “For this chat” option and tap the “OK” button.
  • You will now see the updated background for the conversation.

If you want to remove the custom wallpaper, tap the menu button, go to the “Wallpaper” section, tap the “Edit” button, select the “Remove custom wallpaper” option, then tap “Remove” to confirm the change.

Set custom wallpaper for chats on WhatsApp for iPhone

The process for iPhone users is slightly different. Open WhatsApp on your iPhone and go to a conversation. Here, tap the profile picture or name found at the top for the chat.

  • Here, choose “Background and Sound”.
  • Now, select the “Choose a new wallpaper” option.
  • From the next screen, you can browse the “Bright”, “Dark” and “Solid Colors” wallpaper collections. If you want to select your own image as wallpaper, choose the “Photo” option.
  • After selecting a photo, you can resize it to fit the chat window.
  • When you are satisfied, tap the “Set” button.
  • Now go back to the chat and you will see the new custom wallpaper right in the chat background.

If you want to remove the custom background, go to the Background and Sound section> Choose a new background and tap the “Remove custom background” option. Then, select the “Remove Custom Background” button to confirm.
