WABetaInfo saw the new wallpaper feature for Android in WhatsApp v126.96.36.199 beta. According to the report of WhatsApp Tracker, when users choose the default wallpaper in the app, they will be asked if they want to download the WhatsApp wallpaper app. According to the report, this is the official WhatsApp app, which will provide wallpapers for social media platforms. The app is also listed on Google Play and was last updated in 2011. As soon as the wallpaper feature goes live, WhatsApp will update this app with new options.
As we mentioned, this new wallpaper feature allows users to set different wallpapers in different chats, similar to what was previously seen in iOS. WABetaInfo says this feature will be released for Android users in the future as well, although the exact rollout date is not yet clear.
Significantly, it was recently reported that WhatsApp is reportedly working on redesigning the storage section of its chat app, so that users can easily manage storage and create space by deleting unnecessary files. This redesign feature will have a storage bar at the top, which gives details of the space used by the media file shared on WhatsApp. Apart from this, a clean up option is also provided in the screenshot, in which forward and large files will be listed with thumbnail view which gives users the option to delete non-essential files to free up space. This feature is also currently under development, and has not yet been enabled for WhatsApp beta users.
