Last week, WhatsApp launched a new feature that allows you to set custom wallpapers for each conversation or group instead of setting only one background for all conversations and groups, as you can now set a custom wallpaper for each friend, a background for the family group, and another for a work group, so you can easily distinguish between chats That you use daily.

Previously, the WhatsApp application allows you to set a unified background for all conversations only, and there is no way to set a different background for each conversation, but now you can easily do that, as the application now supports a variety of backgrounds to choose from, there are wallpapers that suit the light situation, and other backgrounds Suitable for dark mode, in addition to the ability to set personal photos as backgrounds. There is also no limit to the number of conversations you can set custom wallpapers for.
