Customizing WhatsApp is an option that allows you to give the chat interface a facelift and change the appearance of the application to personalize it with more colorful themes, or with personal photos. There are also other options that will help us to adjust the use of the application to our preferences.
Below you can see which are the most useful functions that you can customize and the step by step to make the changes.
How to customize the different functions of WhatsApp
WhatsApp is the instant messaging system most used by millions of people in the world. One of the reasons behind its success has to do with the fact that its design is simple and functional since it aims to adapt to anyone’s taste without much complexity.
On the other hand, one of the strengths is that it is a totally free messaging service that is also updated every so often including numerous improvements, so the options for use are increasingly wide. Below you will see how to customize many aspects of WhatsApp and adapt it to your style.
Change the wallpaper
- Access the Settings> Chats section
- From this section you will find an option to modify the wallpaper of the chats. You can choose any photo that you have stored on your smartphone
Keep in mind that when you select a background, it will be applied to all your WhatsApp chats and group conversations.
Change the sound of notifications
Another way that allows us to customize our WhatsApp application is the possibility of changing the message notification tone. In order to modify this option we must click on Settings> Notifications.
The good thing about this option is that we can put the same melody that we have assigned to a contact when we receive a call from him, so we will know who has written a message before even looking at the screen. In the same way, we can assign a different melody to a group chat .
Add a description to groups
Another function that you can use in WhatsApp is to add a description to the groups in which you participate. This option is very useful for other members to know what is being talked about in the group, in order to differentiate it and order it according to importance.
To do this you must go to the group, and click on the name. There a menu will appear in which you can find the section to add a description of the chat.
Extra: Applications to customize WhatsApp
There are a series of external applications that can help you customize certain aspects of WhatsApp that you cannot modify from the app itself.
