Signal Adds Custom Wallpapers, Animated Stickers And About Section
Privacy-focused messaging app Signal added a number of new features in both iOS and Android device. New features include chat wallpapers, animated stickers, and an “About” section in your profile.
The new features were first announced on January 11th, and Android Police reported on them rolling out in the beta version of Signal for Android last week Friday. With chat wallpapers, you can pick from a number of presets or select a photo of your own, and you can also set a wallpaper for a specific conversation or all of them. The beta had 24 animated stickers, according to Android Police.
