WhatsApp will look a little different soon. The first changes can actually be seen in the beta version of the messaging software for a small number of users. We’ll tell you what users can expect here.
With a future update, WhatsApp will modify its design a little. Like WABetaInfo mentioned, It is mainly about what is called a “media footer”. This appears under status messages from other users. WhatsApp users can easily send messages to others and interact with another’s status. In the future, the appendix will be more consistent with the overall design of WhatsApp.
As can be seen from the first preview, the chat bar is now much clearer and rounded. Additionally, the Pictures and Other Media Attachments button moves to the ribbon to keep the look clear. This also shows users that there is an option to add media. Last but not least, the send button is minimized and the recipient’s name is displayed directly below it. Until now, the name was always on the left.
When will WhatsApp adapt to the design?
So far, the changes are only a preview version of WhatsApp. Even if you downloaded the current messenger beta, you likely won’t see the design. This is because WhatsApp is still actively developing the redesign. So it might take some time until the beta and final version.
The messaging service has not yet announced the date of the update. Developers are currently trying to clarify the new messaging software guidelines. The deadline for WhatsApp’s terms and conditions is May 2021. If users do not accept the terms and conditions by then, there are already initial plans. Gradually restrict WhatsApp accounts.
