WhatsApp will soon look a little different. The first changes can already be seen in the beta of the messenger for some users. We will tell you what users can expect here.
With a future update, WhatsApp will adjust its own design a bit. Like WABetaInfo reportedThis is mainly the so-called “media footer”. It appears below the status messages of other users. WhatsApp users can easily message other people and react to the other person’s status. In the future, the footer will be more aligned with the general layout of WhatsApp.
As you can see from the first preview, the chat bar is now more clearly highlighted and rounded. In addition, the button for images and other multimedia attachments moves towards the bar to keep the appearance clear. This also makes it clear to users that there is an option to add media. Last but not least, the send button is made smaller and the recipient’s name is displayed directly below it. Until now, the name was always on the left.
When will WhatsApp adapt the design?
So far, the changes are just a preview version of WhatsApp. Even if you download the current beta version of Messenger, you probably won’t see the layout. This is because WhatsApp is still actively developing the redesign. So it may still take a while until a beta and final release.
The courier has not yet announced a date for the update. The developers are currently trying to clarify the new messenger guidelines. The ultimatum for the terms and conditions of WhatsApp is in May 2021. If users do not accept the terms and conditions by then, there are already first plans that Gradually restrict WhatsApp accounts.
