How to change color on WhatsApp

Let's start this guide on how to change color on WhatsApp speaking of the function that allows you to change the tone of the interface, choosing between light and dark themes.

How to change color in WhatsApp: Android

If you have a device Android and you want to know how to change color in WhatsApp, know that all you have to do is go to the application settings and choose the theme that best suits you from there.

Then tap on the items Chat> Theme and, in the box Choose theme that appeared on the screen, select the theme of your interest (Chiaro o Dark). Finally, tap on the item OK And that's it.

How to change color in WhatsApp: iPhone

If you want change color to WhatsApp on iPhone, you have to follow a decidedly different procedure than the one seen in the previous chapter, since in this case the light / dark theme of WhatsApp changes according to the theme in use on iOS and, therefore, you have to act directly from the operating system settings. I also remind you that the ability to change the theme is available if the iPhone in use is equipped with iOS 13 or later.

Therefore, open the app Settings, by tapping on the gray icon with gears located on the home screen or in the app Library, presses on the item Screen and brightness and select the theme of your interest (Chiaro o Dark). By doing so, the system interface will be modified accordingly and the theme will also be applied to the WhatsApp interface.

Moving on ON the switch lever on the screen Screen and brightness, you will have the possibility to set the light theme during the day and the dark one in the evening in a completely automatic way. Convenient, right?

If you use WhatsApp on PC via WhatsApp Web or the official client for Windows / macOS, you can switch from the light to the dark theme, and vice versa, by pressing the ⋮ icon located at the top left, by going to Settings> Theme and choosing one of the available options.

On operating systems that support system dark mode, you can also select the item default, to make the WhatsApp theme adapt to the system one.

How to change WhatsApp keyboard color

Are you going to change WhatsApp keyboard color? This is feasible by installing and using third-party keyboards, however I advise you to think carefully about which one to use. Since you type a lot of sensitive data on your device (passwords, credit card numbers, etc.), using third-party keyboards that could potentially keep track of what is typed is not the best for privacy!

If you really want to use a colored keyboard, take advantage of super-trusted solutions like Google's Gboard (Android / iOS) or Microsoft's SwiftKey (Android / iOS), to which background colors and themes can be applied directly from the settings.

Once you have downloaded one of the keyboards in question, you will need to set them as default keyboards and change the color or theme of the keyboards, according to your preferences. If you don't know how to do it, I invite you to consult the guides in which I explain in detail how to change the color of the keyboard and I have dedicated entirely to the topic. I am sure it will be useful to you.

How to change WhatsApp text color

You have come to this tutorial hoping to find out how to change text color on whatsapp? I'm sorry to disappoint you, but this is not feasible, at least not at the moment in which I am making this tutorial. Should there be any news in this regard, I will not fail to update the guide with the appropriate instructions.

In the meantime, you could use some stickers that have colored lettering… that's not what you planned to do, I know, but unfortunately there are no other solutions available. If you want information on how to make stickers for WhatsApp and how to send stickers on WhatsApp, I refer you to reading the guide I have dedicated to the topic.

How to change WhatsApp icon color

I conclude this guide by briefly indicating some possible solutions for change the color of the WhatsApp icon, if the thing may interest you.

In the case of Android, you can do this by using third-party launcher icon sets, such as Nova Launcher (which is one of the most famous and used by users). To find custom icon packs, go to Play Store, search for "Icon pack" and see if you find someone you like, which integrates icons of different colors for WhatsApp.

If you have one iPhoneinstead, you can take advantage of the app Apple commands to create a script with a custom icon on the home screen able to open the WhatsApp app (although I do not recommend it, since this slows down the launch of the app, as it opens briefly first the command app and then the link target app) or Launch Center Pro, an excellent third-party launcher that also allows you to create direct links to apps with custom icons, but which has prices not exactly within everyone's reach: 16,49 euro / year.

That said, if you want further information on how to change icons on Android and how to customize icons on iPhone, I refer you to reading the in-depth information I have dedicated to these topics. I am sure you will find them useful.
