WABetaInfo, a known WhatsApp tipster publication, discovered the new feature in the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS update from the TestFlight app. 

This feature empowers users with greater flexibility in their messaging experience. It allows them to handpick from five predefined color options, such as green, blue, white, coral, and purple, to customize the chat bubble color within conversations. This customization can be tailored to match their unique style and preferences, putting them in control of their messaging aesthetics. 

“This restriction ensures that users won’t select colors that could compromise the readability of their messages, maintaining the necessary color accessibility for those who need specific contrast levels to comfortably read their conversations,” WABetaInfo states in its report.
