How to Change the Theme of Instagram DMs

If you’re like me, you know that Instagram’s direct messages are the perfect way to have a private chat with your loved ones. It’s a great feature that allows you to catch up with your friends and family members without the whole world seeing. And did you know that you can take it up a notch by video calling your friends too? How cool is that? But wait, there’s more! You can even change the theme of your Instagram DMs for that extra touch of personalization.

I have to admit, changing the theme of your direct messages doesn’t offer any real benefits. But hey, if you’re all about adding your own style to your conversations with friends or that special someone, Instagram has got your back with this nifty option.

How to jazz up your Instagram DM themes on Android or iPhone

Changing your Instagram DM’s theme is a piece of cake. Just like in Facebook’s Messenger, this feature is absolutely free, and you can change it as many times as you want, for as many conversations as you’re having.

Instagram Select Theme

  1. To get started, open up Instagram.
  2. Next, tap on the Messenger icon located at the top right of the screen.
  3. Now, choose the specific direct message (DM) that you want to customize.
  4. In the top center of the chat head, tap on it to reveal some options.
  5. From the options, select the “Themes” option.
  6. Once you’re in the themes section, simply pick the theme that you want to use.

You have the ability to set a unique chat theme for each individual conversation you have on Instagram. However, it’s important to note that if you change the theme for a specific chat, it will also change for the other person as well. This also applies to group chats on Instagram. And just in case you didn’t know, there is a way to read Instagram direct messages without the other person knowing.

How to Change the Wallpaper of Your Instagram DM

Unfortunately, Instagram does not offer a way to use your own photos as a background for DMs. The only way to change the background is by selecting a theme that also changes the wallpaper for the entire chat. To find themes that include custom wallpapers, follow the steps mentioned above and open the theme selection menu.

Themes that come with wallpapers are labeled under “Themes” section. If you scroll down, you’ll find another section called “Colors & Gradients”. These options allow you to change the colors of your Instagram DM, but they won’t change the wallpaper.

Customize Your Instagram Experience Now

Hey there! Want to make your Instagram conversations feel more personalized? Well, lucky for you, changing the themes on Instagram is the way to go! It’s super cool because it allows you to customize your experience with each person you have a direct message (DM) with. You know, those private chats where you can have all sorts of fun conversations!

But guess what? I wish Instagram had even more customization options, just like Messenger. Imagine being able to change other things, like the wallpaper or even add cool word effects to make your chats extra special. How awesome would that be?

Now, if you’re eager to take your Instagram experience up a notch and make it truly your own, I’m going to show you how to manage your Instagram notifications. Believe me, it’s worth it!


Q. Will the person I’m chatting with see the changes I make to the Instagram DM?

A. Absolutely! They can also change the themes whenever they want to. It’s like a theme party where everyone gets to dress up in their favorite outfits. So much fun, right? By the way, this applies to group chats too. Everyone in the chat can change the theme whenever they feel like it.

Q. Can I use a photo from my gallery as an Instagram wallpaper?

A. Ah, unfortunately, this feature isn’t available yet. We don’t know if Instagram plans to make it available in the future either. But hey, who knows? Maybe one day you’ll be able to set your favorite photo as your Instagram wallpaper and make it look super cool!

Q. Can I stop the person I’m chatting with from changing the theme in the Instagram DM?

A. Nope, sorry, you can’t prevent them from changing the theme. But don’t worry, they can’t stop you either. It’s like a two-way street. You both have the freedom to switch themes whenever you want. Just remember, when you change the theme, the other person will get a notification about it. Time to surprise them with a new theme!
