Is it possible to change the background of messages?

So I got my S9+ this morning (upgrading from an S8) and I noticed the option to change the background of messages is gone. Has this feature been removed or is it still available under another menu? It's a shame that I can't find it because I really liked that feature from the S8. 

 

Thanks in advance for any help given.

Umm yeah Samsung is playing like Apple IOS as the feature you've described for the Samsung S10 is not available for us Note9/S9 and below users, the feature has been removed on the One UI2.0 upgrade and S10 and above is using the latest One UI2.1 which we can not upgrade too, our only choice is too upgrade our.mobiles too S10/Note10 and above, like I said Samsung is playing the Apple game forcing us too upgrade too get the latest software features, they should of at least left the feature as it was

Are you sure I'm currently using it on my s9. It should work and android 9 and 10, that's what it says on the Galaxy Store. Did it just say the apps were unavailable in the Galaxy Store or how did they keep you from downloading them?

You can change the background of the keyboard to any picture using Microsoft swiftkey from Google Play Store. And they provide great

options to customize your keyboard.

I have swift key.  I was trying to change the background on the text app not my keyboard. But thank you.

@Isake i posted an option to do that on the pervious page. But i included an opinion to have a custom background on your keyboard also, since you see your keyboard most times your in messaging.
