1. How to download the apps in this list
Something you should really be aware of is that none of these apps can be found on the Play Store. Thus, the users have to download the .apk file (format for Android installers) and change a few settings on their phones before being able to install them to make their WhatsApp transparent.
It is really worth mentioning that, even though these apps provide you with a lot of customization, you will run the risk of getting temporarily suspended from the platform. If that happens and you insist on keeping using these apps, you might even get permanently banned!
Luckily, as time goes by these apps have found new creative ways to avoid their users getting banned, so it is more and more likely that you’ll be fine.
If your Android is Nougat 7.1.2 or inferior, you will first need to open your Settings, tap Security or Lock screen and security and, finally, enable Unknown sources so you can install apps that don’t come fro the Play Store.
Now, if you use Android Oreo 8.0 or newer, the process changes quite a bit, and happens for each app. For instance, when downloading an apk through your browser, you’ll have to enable installing from the browser by tapping Settings and then Allow from this source.
After that, you will always be able to download and install apks from your browser! You can also choose to go to Settings, Apps and notifications, Special access to apps, and tap Install unknown apps. Here, you can then enable installing from whichever apps you choose!
There are also options for iPhone users. They are available whether or not your iOS device has jailbreak, but if you don’t it is much more annoying to install, and the features will be more limited.
2. WhatsApp Transparent Android
The first of the options that let you use this feature is WhatsApp Transparent Android, a very aptly named app. Other than this essential feature, it offers a lot of emojis and emoticons not found on the official app!
To download it, all you have to do is the previous steps and then follow this link to install it. After that, you will need to log in to the app with your WhatsApp account.

GBWhatsApp Android is doubtlessly one of the best options for those who want to have access to a myriad of customization options on WhatsApp, including the possibility of making it transparent.

One of the biggest downsides of this app (and of any other iOS version you find) is that you have to have a jailbroken iPhone. Otherwise, you will need to have to reinstall it every 7 days.
To install it on a jailbroken device, you simply will have to follow this link and tap Download on the Cydia Store, which you’ll see in the middle of the screen. On the other hand, for non-jailbroken defices, you will have to follow the steps below:
