WhatsApp Testing Theme Colours, Sticker Editor in Latest iOS Beta

WhatsApp is reportedly working on an upcoming feature that will enable iOS users to customize the theme accent of the popular messaging app. According to insights shared by WABetaInfo, a feature tracker, the beta version on iOS has already seen changes in the app’s appearance, introducing a green tint to certain interface elements. This indicates a future update allowing users to choose from five theme colour accents.

In the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS update, code reveals that users will soon have the option to select an accent colour for various UI elements, such as message counts, status update circles, tab colours, and specific buttons. The current stable version displays these elements with a blue accent, while the upcoming update will offer choices between green, blue, off-white, pink, and purple accents. Users will be informed that their selection will only impact the app’s main branding colour.

Simultaneously, the beta version introduces a new sticker editor feature, aiming to enhance user experience. This editor, currently available to beta testers, allows users to edit existing stickers by tapping on them and accessing an Edit Sticker button. Additionally, a button labelled Create Your Own enables users to craft personalized stickers directly within the app, including the ability to remove backgrounds from images.

While the sticker editor is actively rolling out to beta testers, the color accent picker is still in development and may take some time before it becomes available for testing. Typically maintaining feature parity between platforms, these updates are expected to extend to WhatsApp for Android in the future. Stay tuned for more user customization options and enhanced sticker functionality on WhatsApp.
