The messaging app is also working on a new feature which will be called Wallpaper dimming. This feature will allow users to choose the opacity of their WhatsApp wallpaper. It will help in enhancing the user experience further as per the fancy of the users.
Also, reports suggest that WhatsApp is working in adding doodles to wallpapers. The Facebook-owned messaging app will give an option to users if they want a wallpaper or if they prefer WhatsApp doodles on the wallpapers.
