There's this message when I open the app telling me to 'please switch to v2 because v1 is unsupported'. Are you aware of that?

Thank you for the feedback.

I've just published a new version using the image you've put the link. The only change I made was to remove the white border, adding transparency in its place.

About the icon: I'm pretty sure the StartupWMClass fix actually also fixed the icon. At least when I fixed it manually it looked fine for me in GNOME Dash to Dock.

Hello, first of all thanks for keeping this updated

I see you changed the icon, it is now not pixelated. One issue though, being it mostly black, it causes issues on dark themes

Using a version with a white outline and a dark color in the center would fix the issue (or just using default whatsapp colors)

Something like this for example

If you want, i could easily make one

Hi ColonelPhantom.

Regarding the emoji have a white background, this is a known issue for now. Will try a fix later.

Regarding the StartupWMClass it should be fixed in the last version.

Hi franciscocpg,

The package works well, except that emoji have a white background rather than blending in with the theme. Screenshot:

Furthermore, the StartupWMClass in the desktop file is wrong. I managed to get pinning etc to work properly in GNOME by changing it to "whatsapp-nativefier-d52542".

the icon is still pixelated on gnome dash to dock. instead of using the same icon for the .desktop, it creates a new low quality icon for display and stands side by side with the .desktop icon on the dock

Hi Franciscocpg,

sispus, eugen-b

It looks like nativefier has changed the way it generates the file name (see and so it broke this build.

Thank you for the feedback. It should be working now.
