Changing the color of WhatsApp is one of the actions that its users want the most. However, many do not know how to make it possible.
If you find it boring to see the same old shades, it is good to know that there are alternatives with just a few adjustments. See below what they are.

- Within the settings, follow the path Chats > Theme and choose the Dark mode. Press Ok and your WhatsApp interface will have a new color .
In addition to providing a different aesthetic aspect, the dark mode of WhatsApp (other applications also offer it) reduces visual fatigue caused by screens, minimizes battery consumption and allows you to see more easily at night.

- Follow the path Settings or Settings > Home screen & wallpaper > Themes . At the bottom of the screen, select Me to access mobile settings.
- Go to My Themes > Icons , choose any of the ones you have downloaded and browse through the features to see alternatives. There are free and paid options. To finish, press Apply .

With third-party apps
