Questions and Answers

I want to set my chat background in my WhatsApp individually for my girlfriend?

My problem is if I set a wallpaper for one contact it is appearing for all remaining, my phone is Moto G3

Are you selecting Set just within the message window of a chat with your girlfriend? You also have to do the wallpaper change specifically in a chat window with just her.

How to change the wallpaper for only one person?

I want to set different wallpapers for different people, can I? On Samsung?

The instructions to change just one contact's wallpaper are the same on a Samsung. These are the WhatsApp Android methods for changing wallpaper. You will have to open a chat window for each person that you want to individualize.

If I change my WhatsApp wallpaper in a chat box for someone special, will it be visible to the chatting person??

I want to put an inscription on the profile picture of one of my contacts in WhatsApp

You would need to use a Meme Generator to inscribe on the Profile Picture of another Contact within WhatsApp. This Youtube Tutorial shows you how to change their profile pic.

Can I set a different wallpaper for different contacts in WhatsApp?

I am aware that I can change wallpapers in WhatsApp but, I don't want to have the same for all of my contacts. I have tried: I've just began trying by surfing. I think it was caused by: No idea

Since you just began the process, you probably skipped the portion where you choose Chats and then the individual chat window of a contact to change the wallpaper for just them.
