The Meta-owned instant messaging application WhatsApp is reportedly planning to roll out a revamped interface by introducing new colours and icons.
“After quietly developing a new revamped interface for the Android application in the last few months, WhatsApp is now ready to release it to a limited number of beta testers,” WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp, reported.
As per the screenshot shared by WABetaInfo, a significant update is available to a limited number of beta testers that includes a redesigned interface. It features new icons to offer users a more modern experience by enhancing the overall visual appeal of the app.
In addition, the instant messaging platform is also updating the the predominant theme colour for both light and dark modes with a new green colour, along with a fresh colour look for chat bubbles and the floating action button.
The report also revealed that this interface is also available to a limited number of beta testers who install the latest WhatsApp Business beta update.
“By introducing a new revamped interface, WhatsApp is aiming to provide a more contemporary and visually appealing experience for its users. In our opinion, this change not only showcases their dedication to improving the interface but also suggests that WhatsApp is actively listening to user feedback and staying up-to-date with design trend,” said WABetaInfo.
The report also suggested that the Meta-owned application might gradually introduce small changes to the interface, such as releasing new icons without implementing the new colour scheme. It is just a matter of days before more users can experiment with the new interface.
The new interface is available to a limited number of beta testers who install the latest version of WhatsApp beta for Android from the Google Play Store, and it is rolling out to more users over the coming weeks.
