But make sure you stay until the end because I’ve saved the best hack for last that you don’t want to miss. And that is you can customize just about anything your chats. To do that, all you need to do is make your way to Settings, then scroll down until you see chat settings. Once in here, you’ll see a pretty sweet selection of customization options, color options that change the color of your message bar.
