WhatsApp’s new wallpaper feature is expected to arrive for Android and iOS in the near future.
WhatsApp is rumored to be working on a number of new features and functions. One of the impending changes is believed to increase customizability for the app’s voice call interface, while the other is said to add security to the instant messaging app. According to sources, the former will soon add two-step authentication to the desktop client, while the latter will allow users to select and configure wallpapers as backgrounds for WhatsApp voice chats.
WhatsApp users may soon be able to use two-step verification on the desktop client, according to a report by WhatsApp features tracker WABetaInfo. On the desktop app, users will be able to set or disable two-step verification, update their PIN, and modify their email address, according to the screenshot. WhatsApp allows users to encrypt their accounts by creating a customized PIN for signing in when registering a phone number.
This functionality is presently inaccessible on WhatsApp, but according to the source, it will be available in a future update for the Web/desktop client.
According to WABetaInfo, the Meta-owned instant messaging program will display the chat wallpaper of the account being called. As of now, WhatsApp only displays the default wallpaper in the voice call interface, rather than a custom chat wallpaper. Because this feature is still in development, it’s possible that WhatsApp will display customized chat wallpapers in the voice call interface.
The new voice call wallpaper has been discovered on WhatsApp for iOS and is anticipated to make its way to WhatsApp for Android. According to the article, there is no information on when the feature will be available for Android handsets.
Last month, news of WhatsApp’s new voice call interface surfaced. The new interface, which will be accessible for both Android and iOS apps, is supposed to be more compact and modern.
