WhatsApp has recently introduced a new user interface (UI) for its Android beta testers. This development was reported by WABetaInfo, a reliable source for WhatsApp updates.
The new UI is inspired by Material Design 3 and features several changes to enhance user experience. The profile icon, camera, and search features have been relocated to the top-right corner of the screen. Additionally, the messaging platform has incorporated a fresh green color into the updated dark and light themes.
This new interface also introduces redesigned chat bubbles and a floating action button, providing a more streamlined and modern look. These changes are part of the latest WhatsApp beta for Android version 220.127.116.11, which is currently available on Google Play.
The revamped interface has been in development for several months, with the company gradually releasing it to a limited number of beta testers.
Users who have installed the latest WhatsApp beta update from the Google Play Store will be able to access this new interface.
However, it’s important to note that the full release of this feature may take some time. The company plans to progressively roll out the new interface to a wider user base in the coming weeks.
Therefore, it might be a while before all Android users can experience the new WhatsApp interface on their devices.
WhatsApp is also testing a new reply bar specifically designed for images and videos on Android. There are also indications that the company is working on an iPad-compatible version of the messaging platform.
This development comes after Meta partnered with Microsoft last month to integrate Bing Search into Meta’s AI chatbot. As always, WhatsApp continues to innovate and improve its platform to provide a better user experience.
