How to change the WhatsApp icon on Android

WhatsApp is one of the favorite applications of users. It allows us to stay in touch with our friends, our family and our duties at work or school.

Each of the chats is unique, each has different stickers and we can change the background in the conversations but, if you want to go further, we will explain how to change the icon color.

If you’re tired of green or have a color you love and want your mobile to reflect your personality, there are ways to take personalization to another level through third-party applications.

How to change the color of the WhatsApp icon

If you want to customize the screen of your mobile and change the WhatsApp icon, you will have to use a launcher for your Android mobile (if you use iPhone, unfortunately it will not be possible, given the restrictions imposed by Apple), which is a program that allows you to change the look of your mobile screen.

The first step is to download the Nova launcher application available in the Google Play Store for Android devices.

Now you will have two options based on the colors you want to choose.If you are interested in having the icon in black and white, you will also need to download the Whicons icon pack from Nova Launcher.

Once Nova Launcher is open, go to Settings, then Appearance, then Icon Style and finally Icon Theme.

Once in that option select the Whicons package and voila, all the icons on your mobile will turn black and white.

However, if you only want WhatsApp to change, click on the app logo under “Application Label” and then select Whicons.

If you want another color, such as pink, you can create icons with any image you have on your phone or you can create the ones you want with apps like X Icon Changer.

The only thing you will have to do when you have decided which icon you want to use for WhatsApp is to click on the app while holding down the current icon. A window with several options will appear and you will need to click on «Edit».

There you can select the icon you want, among those you have created and saved in the memory of your mobile. This will replace the original WhatsApp icon with this one.

Keep in mind that only you will see the change and the people you talk to will have no idea that your WhatsApp icon is now different.
