WhatsApp has been characterized since its appearance among mobile devices in providing the user with more and more functions that improve the service, but always was in debt to customization, such as changing the color of the traditional icon.
This layer of personalization absent in the messaging app can be replaced with a third-party app that works in tandem with WhatsApp. It should be clarified that you will not have access to conversations or personal information of users, it only applies to the aesthetic environment.
In this context appears Nova Launcher. It is an app that can be downloaded without too many inconveniences and installed on the cell phone or tablet to completely change the interface in a very simple way.
Once it is available on the device, the user must configure it according to preferences. Choose the number of apps or choose the color of the phone’s theme (light, dark or automatic) and the arrangement of the icons on the screen.
The Nova Launcher app can be downloaded free of charge from the Google Play Store.
For example, you can change the classic green WhatsApp icon for a blue, purple or whatever you want to have on your cell phone.
How to change the color of WhatsApp
For that, first, you have to go and enter the Google search engine where you will have to look for the WhatsApp icon in blue and in transparent PNG format.
After downloading it, you have to return to the main screen of the device.
Now you must press the WhatsApp icon for about three seconds and a window will open to be able to edit it.
Next, the downloaded blue WhatsApp icon is searched for and replaced by the classic one. Finally, it must be superimposed on the original image. This way, the application logo can be modified.

The novelty in which WhatsApp works for its instant messaging service will allow access status updates from a user’s profile, in a process that follows the example of the disappeared Twitter Fleets.
The messenger recently updated the beta of its Android application (version 22.214.171.124) with a new feature in development that appeared in the code and will arrive in a future update to software testers, as highlighted by the specialized site WABetaInfo.
