Christmas 2021: how to put a Christmas background to each WhatsApp chat

The arrival of the Christmas time inspires millions of people to decorate with decorations alluding to this holiday and WhatsApp does not have to be the exception. The application has tools that allow you to change the background of each chat to give it a Christmas touch.

Yes OK the application itself has more than 80 default backgrounds, none of them is allusive to Christmas. For this reason it is necessary to resort to images downloaded from the Internet.

One aspect to highlight is that the new wallpaper will only be visible to you, as your contacts will continue to view the image they previously had on their phones.

Here’s how to do it:

one. Enter your phone’s web browser, go to the images section and Search for “Christmas wallpapers for cell phones”
