If you too are fascinated by this new trend and would like to know how to write colorful on WhatsApp, you will be happy to know that everything you need to know is contained in this guide of mine. In the course of this tutorial, in fact, I will explain step by step what you will need to do to succeed in your intent to write a different message than usual on WhatsApp. However, keep in mind that the ability to write colored is only available in the WhatsApp application on Android and iOS.



All you need is a few minutes of free time to calmly read this guide of mine. Keep your Android smartphone or iPhone at hand: contrary to what you might imagine, using this particular feature of WhatsApp is disarmingly easy and the procedures indicated can also be performed by non-users who are not particularly familiar with technology or with the messaging application. All clear? Yup? Very well? Then let's get started right away. I wish you a good read as usual.

What are WhatsApp statuses

To write colorful on WhatsApp from your smartphone, you must first create a new status.

If you are not sure the characteristics of this feature, keep in mind that a WhatsApp status is nothing more than a personalized multimedia content with a duration limited to a few seconds. Furthermore, the created states are only visible for 24 hours. After this time period they are removed.

The statuses created on WhatsApp can be composed of multimedia elements such as images, videos, GIFs or photos present in the multimedia gallery of your device.



WhatsApp states they can be composed of photos, videos, animated GIFs or images previously downloaded to the smartphone roll. In particular, the videos can have a maximum duration of 30 seconds. Furthermore, before sharing images and videos, you can customize them by adding any captions, writings, emojis and drawings.

Following a recent update, WhatsApp has introduced the ability to write colored in a state, thus creating a state consisting only of a customized text message.

Once shared, the status of WhatsApp can be seen by all the contacts in the address book; to limit its visibility, however, it is possible to act through the settings of the messaging application.

In the course of the following lines I will then explain how you can create this particular state that allows you to write with a colored font. I will also tell you about the other tools you will have at your disposal for the realization of a colored writing.

How to write colorful on WhatsApp (iOS)

To write a colored status on WhatsApp you must first open the messaging application and go to the section State from the menu at the bottom (symbol of a circle).

At this point, in correspondence with the item My status, you will find the camera symbol and pencil symbol. To create a state characterized by multimedia elements you will have to tap on the camera symbol, while to write only a colored text message on WhatsApp and send your message in a state, you will have to tap on pencil symbol.


The WhatsApp editor will then open and, in correspondence with the entry Write your status, you can type your message. Note that in this mode, the background and font of the message can be customized. To change the background color of the state, repeatedly tap the palette symbol until you have found the background color that suits your tastes.


To change the font of the typed message instead, tap repeatedly on symbol of the T. You will thus have the opportunity to view the text typed in a different font, thus being able to choose the one you prefer.

Once you have finished customizing your message (you can also add emojis to it), you just have to do to send it tap on the paper airplane symbol that you find at the bottom right. After a few seconds your colored status will be published in the WhatsApp Status section where it will be visible to all your contacts (if you have left the default settings) for 24 hours.

You can write colored on WhatsApp also by creating a multimedia type status, since there is the possibility to insert a colored text message in addition to the photo or video shared in the created state.

To do this, go to the section again State of WhatsApp and create a new status. This time to do it, tap the button with the camera symbol. This will open the default camera of your smartphone: you can then choose to take a photo on the spot or upload an image from the media gallery of your device (accessible by swiping down).


Once you have chosen the photo or video, you can write colorful by tapping on T symbol that you find at the top. This will open the keyboard of your device and you will be able to insert a personalized message that will appear superimposed on the multimedia element. You can change the color of the message just tap on the color present in the vertical color palette located on the right.

Alternatively, you can also create a hand-made colored writing, using the button with the pencil symbol. This tool is designed to draw on photos (or videos) to be included in WhatsApp status, but you can also use it to write a colorful personalized message. To choose the color it will be enough for you also in this case to refer to the colors in the vertical color palette.


However, keep in mind that, using these last two tools, it will not be possible for you to change the font of the written text; you can only customize the color.

Once you have finished making your writing on an image or video, you can send the multimedia content in the form of a status. To do this, simply press on paper airplane symbol located at the bottom right.

Again, the multimedia status with a colored overlay will be online and visible, by default in the section State of WhatsApp. The created status will be public for 24 hours, after which it will be automatically deleted.

How to write colorful on WhatsApp (Android)

The ability to write a colorful status is also available in the WhatsApp application for Android. In the following lines I will explain in detail how you will need to proceed.

The first thing you need to do is go to the section State of WhatsApp. At this point, the first method by which you can write colored on WhatsApp requires you to tap the button with the symbol of a pencil located at the bottom right.

Doing this will open the WhatsApp status creation tool and you can type a custom text message. In this particular section, font and background color can also be aesthetically customized.

In particular, to change the background color, tap repeatedly on the palette symbol until you find the desired color. To change the font of the message, tap several times on the T symbol: you will be able to view the message with different styles and choose the one that best suits your tastes. In this section, what you will not be able to do is change the color of the text which will always remain white.

Once you have finished writing your message (you can also add emojis to it via the button with the smiley face symbol), confirm and send your status by tapping the button in the shape of paper airplane located at the bottom right. By default, the status will be visible for 24 hours to all your contacts in the messaging application.

Would you like to write a colored text message that appears superimposed on a photo or video that you would like to share in a Whatsapp status? You will be happy to know that it is possible. In the following lines I'll explain step by step how to proceed.

Go back to the WhatsApp Status section and, in order to create a multimedia type status, tap on camera symbol located at the bottom right. The default camera of your device will open: this way you can take a photo on the spot or press and hold the circular button to make a short video. If, on the other hand, you swipe upwards, you can choose a photo to publish directly from those in the media gallery of your device.

On this screen, you can write a message to be superimposed on the photo or video. To do this, just tap the button with the symbol of a T. Using the keyboard of your Android device you can type a personalized message and change the color of the same: just tap on the desired color in correspondence with the vertical color palette located on the right.

Alternatively, by tapping on the button in the shape of a pencil, you can use your finger by drawing a handwritten inscription on the screen. This button is in fact designed to allow you to draw and write on photos or videos shared as WhatsApp status. However, keep in mind that by writing a colored message overlay on a photo or video you can only change the color of the text and not the font.

Have you finished writing your message and would like to send your status? No problem: just tap on the paper airplane symbol bottom right. Again, by default, the realized status will be shared automatically with all your contacts in the messaging application.

Finally, keep in mind that you can write a colored overlay message (using the button with the T symbol and the one with the pencil symbol), even by sending an attached multimedia element in a WhatsApp chat.
