Messaging app WhatsApp is now working towards bringing wallpaper customisation features for Android devices and this includes the ability to set different wallpapers for a number of different chat boxes. Also, it comes with the ability to change the opacity of the wallpaper.
The Facebook-owned platform has submitted a new update through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version up to 18.104.22.168, as per WhatsApp tracking fan site WABetaInfo.
“WhatsApp is working to allows to customise better your chats, using different wallpapers. It will be possible to set the opacity and to add WhatsApp Doodles. In this beta WhatsApp is working to allow to set a wallpaper for a specific chat,” WABetaInfo posted on its web page.
So, when you have to set a new wallpaper in a chat, WhatsApp would ask if you want to set this wallpaper in the current chat or globally (these will exclude chats having a custom wallpaper). As mentioned, this feature is currently under development and it would be available in updates sometime in the near future.
What is the other update?
WhatsApp is also reportedly working to add new tones for group calls and call terminate for iOS devices.
“WhatsApp has officially added a new tone when you terminate a call; WhatsApp has added a new ringtone when you receive a group call,” according to WABetaInfo.
The company is also said to be working to improve Payments feature for specific countries. This will kick into motion for Spain. Notably, WhatsApp Payments feature does not work in India.
WhatsApp has also rewritten the section which will show all shared media files, in order to improve the speed to load images, videos as well as GIFs there. “You can open “Contact Info” > “Media, Links and Docs” to verify,” WABetaInfo added on its page.
