WhatsApp redesigned settings for iOS users. It was recently said that WhatsApp is trying a bottom menu bar and a revamped Context Menu on Android. Now, we’re hearing that iOS will also be getting some changes. Continue reading to find out more.
WhatsApp for iOS is undergoing design changes!
WABetaInfo says that in the iOS beta version 184.108.40.206, WhatsApp is trying a new Settings page for iOS users. WhatsApp wants to change everything about the Settings menu on iOS. The Settings tab is now a round window with your picture in the middle.
There is now a quick way to get to your QR Code and share it at the top. Also, there are three new buttons right below the QR Code shortcut. These are Profile, Privacy, and Contacts. Look at the image below to get a better idea.
Similarly, the messaging feature will change how the Settings page looks on Android. A stable rollout should happen soon since it’s trying the same thing for iOS. It is also likely to have different styles for each area on iOS and a see-through tab bar.
Android also has some changes. WhatsApp is trying a new keyboard with an Emoji Category Bar shaped like a pill at the top. The picture (below) shows that the bar has three options: stickers, GIFs, and emojis.
You can now switch between the three quickly, an important feature of an instant chat app. Also, the button for sharing attachments and the emoji keyboard will be moved up to keep the look consistent. No one knows if it will come to iOS, but it could happen soon.
With these design changes coming up, WhatsApp is doubling its promise to give the chat app a full makeover that will be the same on Android and iOS. The messaging giant is paying attention to everything to give its users the best experience possible.
One thing to remember is that the changes we just talked about are still being worked on. So, it’s hard to say when everyone can use these changes. But since WhatsApp always adds new features, we can expect this one to come soon. We’ll let you know what’s going on. Share your ideas in the comments below until then.
