WhatsApp is reportedly in the process of redesigning its user interface for Android devices. According to reports, the new interface will feature a top bar that allows users to quickly switch between tabs.
The revamped UI, spotted WABetaInfo in WhatsApp beta version 22.214.171.124, is currently under development and not yet available to beta testers. The top bar will provide users with easy access to their chats, unread chats, personal contacts, and business contacts, all from a single interface.
The new design is said to align with Google’s Material Design 3 guidelines for Android. While the report only mentions the Android version of the app, there are also rumors of an iOS revamp in the works.
In addition to the UI revamp, WhatsApp has recently introduced several new features. Users can now share HD 720p videos in chats and take advantage of a native app for Apple’s Mac ecosystem. The platform has also made it easier to send HD photos, create personalized groups, share screens during video calls, and edit photo captions.
With these updates, WhatsApp aims to enhance the user experience and provide its millions of users with a more streamlined and feature-rich messaging platform.
