Change WhatsApp Chat Background on Nokia & Microsoft Lumia

Want to change the background of a WhatsApp chat window on a Nokia or Microsoft Lumia?

Want to use one of your pictures as a custom chat background?

Then you are on the right page, because here...

...I will show you step by step how to do this on a Nokia or Microsoft Lumia Windows Phone 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile smartphone.

But first:

WhatsApp is one of the most popular chat applications.

There's an option to make your chats more personal by using pictures or images as background in your chat windows.

You can set a default background for all chats or for each chat separately and on this page I will show you how to do this.

These steps work for all Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile smartphones such as Nokia and Microsoft Lumia 435, 520, 530, 532, 535, 550, 620, 625, 630, 635, 638, 640, 650, 720, 730, 735, 830, 920, 925, 930, 950, 950 XL, 1020, 1320, 1520 and all other types.
