Give WhatsApp a ‘golden’ touch
If you also want to change the color of the downloaded WhatsApp icon on your phone, follow these simple steps. To give the green WhatsApp icon a gold coating on your phone, first download the new mobile app ‘Nova Launcher’ on your smartphone. Once this mobile app is downloaded to your smartphone, open it and then select the style you want on your mobile device. After selecting the style, you need to find a golden WhatsApp icon photo for your WhatsApp icon.
Apply this new icon like this
Once you find a picture of the golden WhatsApp icon in the Nova Launcher app, you need to download it. Then go to your home screen and long press on your WhatsApp icon. Doing so will change the color of your WhatsApp icon. You will then see an ‘editing pencil’ on the screen, click on it, then go to your phone’s gallery and then select the image of the golden WhatsApp icon downloaded from Nova Launcher. This way the green icon of WhatsApp on your phone will now turn golden.
When using this technique, keep in mind that the WhatsApp icon you download should be in transparent PNG format, otherwise you will not be able to use it for WhatsApp icons.
