The WhatsApp application has been known for its appearance which is dominated by white (or black in dark mode) and green. But in the near future users will be able to change the appearance of the WhatsApp application on their cellphones.

WABetaInfo announced that WhatsApp is testing a Theme feature which allows users to change the color of the application. This feature was found in WhatsApp beta for iOS version 24.1.10.70.

The screenshot uploaded by WABetaInfo shows that there are five colors that users can choose, namely green, blue, white, purple and pink. There is no option to choose a custom color according to the user’s wishes.

At the bottom of the color selection there is a statement that states ‘This only updates the main color of the app’, which means that this color selection only changes the main color of the application.

But don’t worry because WABetaInfo also found that this customization option will likely be expanded to allow users to change the color of the chat bubble, as quoted by Tech viral.

The option to change the theme color of the WhatsApp application can be accessed in the Appearance menu in the application settings. However, currently these options and menus cannot be accessed by users because this feature is still in the development stage.

This customization option will certainly give users the freedom to change the appearance of the application according to their wishes. Moreover, currently the customization options on WhatsApp are still limited to changing the wallpaper in chat.

WhatsApp users have also been waiting for a long time for the theme feature to appear in Meta’s application. Many users even turn to mod applications made by third parties so they can change the theme of the WA application.

Even though it was only discovered in the WhatsApp beta for iOS, this feature will most likely also be present on Android. It is not yet known when WhatsApp will release the theme feature for all its users.
