The messages app has received quite an overhaul in iOS 14, but it still lacks the option to change the iMessage bubbles color. However, there are plenty of third-party workarounds with apps such as Color Text Messages, Color Chats, and even some keyboard apps. One of the best among these is FancyBubble that makes it super easy to add a colorful element to your chats. Here’s how it works!

Once it’s downloaded, open the Messages app and start a new chat or select an existing conversation. Tap in the text input field.
Just above the keyboard, in the row of apps, select FancyBubble.
This will bring up the options of different colored message bubbles. Tap on the one you want to use.
Type in your message, and hit Send.
You can also change the iMessage bubble color using the FancyBubble app. here’s how you can use it.
Open the FancyBubble app. Here, at the bottom of the screen, you will see a range of message bubble options. Choose the one you want to use.
