Whatsapp was already a well known social networking app, but it really catapulted into world wide popularity when Facebook acquired it. Now Whatsapp has many millions of users all over the world with new users starting to use it every single day. Recently a new VoIP phone calling feature was added to Whatsapp which brings it in direct competition with other popular VoIP apps like Skype, Viber, Line etc. One of the things that makes Whatsapp different from other similar apps is that it gives substantial customization options to the users. For example, you can change the background images or wallpapers for the chatting sessions in Whatsapp.
Having a background image of your choice not only makes the chatting screen more eye pleasing and beautiful, but it also makes the Whatsapp chat more appealing and interesting.

- After you have selected a wallpaper images source, you will be able to select any of them as your chat wallpaper.
Conclusion: You can use local images or Whatsapp wallpaper pack as the chat wallpaper. By choosing a wallpaper for the Whatsapp chat, you not only bring some eye candy to this popular social networking app, but also make it less stressful for the eyes when you engage in all night long conversations with your friends.
