Hey there, WhatsApp users! The latest WhatsApp Beta for Android is making waves with a subtle yet significant change that’s sure to please fans of Google’s design philosophy. WABetaInfo has discovered that WhatsApp is finally adding a bottom navigation bar to its Android app, and it’s a welcome addition indeed.
This new feature, part of version 220.127.116.11, brings the Android app in line with the iOS version, making the experience more consistent for users who switch between the two platforms. The new bottom bar includes four options – Chats, Communities, Status, and Calls – and we think it’s a great way to improve functionality while enhancing the app’s visual elements.
While we don’t know when this new feature will make its way to the stable version of the app, we expect it to happen soon. The importance of consistency from a UI perspective cannot be overstated, and we’re sure WhatsApp is eager to roll out this update as soon as possible.
And that’s not all! WhatsApp is constantly adding new features to the app, including an Instagram-style text editor and fingerprint authentication for chats, a big new security feature that should provide peace of mind for users. And while not all features have been perfect – such as the polls feature, which received a fix in a recent update – we’re confident that WhatsApp is dedicated to providing the best possible user experience.
So keep your eyes peeled for this exciting new update, and rest assured that WhatsApp is always working to improve and enhance its app for its millions of users around the world.
