WhatsApp is arguably the most used social messaging platform with over a billion downloads on the google play store alone. They also have a lot of active users which I’m proudly one of. WhatsApp is my go to source for reaching out to friend and family. It’s every easy to use and has a very clean and neat interface. It also has all the necessary features I need to effectively communicate with friends and family.

Features like the PIN to Top and Video Calling. One can even call up to 3 people at once which is great for those family times. It’s safe to say that I, along with so many others spend so much time on WhatsApp and when you frequent the app a lot, it starts to get boring. It’s only normal that we can switch things a little bit by changing the wallpaper.

Now, Changing the wallpaper is perhaps the only “Modification” allow on the app. if you would like more options like change the colours and stuff like then you’ll have to go for GBWhatsApp which a modded version of the original WhatsApp that comes with a lot of features that allow you theme the app the way you want.

However, we will be focusing on changing just the wallpaper on the normal WhatsApp iOS and Android App and WhatsApp Web.
