Colors in chats

Idea name: Colors in chats
Description: Set a default color to be displayed in a contact’s specific chat.
Use case: As a user, I want to be able to define different colors to be displayed in chats so that I can personalize my experience.
Target user: Users who want to add more personality to their chats.
Why this is important: Currently all chats have only one standard color (blue) to be displayed in the chat; be able to give greater control of personalization and individualization in the messaging experience.
Any other comments:

If you think this is a great idea and know how to implement it, consider posting a project proposal on Assemble.

It should be relatively straight-forward to expose the style/theme support to the user to manually customize the look and feel of the application, would this be what you are looking for?


Yes, it is exactly similar to what we found in Signal, for example.

Thank you, Jarred! :grin:

Upvoted, @Alice! The option to highlight the messages of contacts also helps users to see them more easily in a potential sea of public messages, making messaging more sticky. I actually suggested this exact feature months ago (though my submission had more detail than what is there); here it is on Trello:

I saw that this suggestion is in the plans for the next Status updates. Thank you for considering her!

I would like to take advantage and bring an additional suggestion to the colors: colors in gradient or with some effect.

It is very beautiful the chat bubbles of fb messenger that has this colorful effect.



The new instagram / messenger update brought great “inspirations” to the UX / UI design of the Status chat.

Background image: make available background images predefined by the Status team and / or open an equal “market” of stickers for others to develop your “chat themes”.

Colors: the colors design in the chat I asked for in this request.
