WhatsApp is known to add more personalisation features to the platform. The instant messaging service added per-chat based wallpaper support a while ago that allows users to have a different chat background for each chat and group. However, when users would make a WhatsApp voice call to the other party, a default screen would become the background.
That could be changing soon. As per a new report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp could soon allow users to use their chat background as their in-call wallpaper as well. This includes the individual chat wallpapers that users have set in various chats.
In a leaked image, we can see how the feature looks. Check it out below.
The feature is reportedly still in development and is yet to hit the beta versions of the app on either Android or iOS. If you use the stable version of WhatsApp, don’t wait up on an update with the new feature just yet as it could take a while.
