In the latest beta version of the WhatsApp app 126.96.36.199 on Android, WABetaInfo discovered: Meta had extensively changed the interface of its flagship messaging app.by adding a navigation bar to the bottom of the screen.
This new feature comes after WhatsApp added a number of interesting new features to its app, including the ability to lock your conversations with your fingerprint, and even a text editor similar to Snapchat or Instagram.
WhatsApp gets a new interface
As WABetaInfo shows, WhatsApp is evolving A modified interface for the app with navigation bar. With this navigation bar, it will definitely be easier for users to navigate between different parts of the app as it can be easily accessed from the bottom of the screen.
There are tabs each for Chats, Communities, Status, and Calls. In the current interface, these different categories are accessible from the top of the screen, which is not always practical as it doesn’t easily fall under your finger. By placing it more clearly at the bottom, WhatsApp can therefore hope to improve the user experience.
The modified user interface with a bottom navigation bar is still under development and will be available to everyone in a future app update. However, as always, the feature may remain in beta for a few more months. For example, the iOS beta app has not yet received the functionality; this may indicate that the Android app will be the first to take advantage of it in a stable release.
By the way, keep in mind that WhatsApp now gives you better control over your temporary messages and soon you will have the option to pin important messages to the beginning of your conversations; this is a useful addition that should be welcomed by some groups. until then you have to use the “favorite” function to save a message.
