WhatsApp is going to change its interface on Android and this mainly concerns the location of the top navigation bar, which will be moved to the bottom, as on iOS. As a result, the buttons to access chats, communities and calls will now be in the lower area of the screen. The design of the pop-up window for the internal chat menu will also be changed. The change is already underway and will soon be made available to users globally.
Here's what the new WhatsApp design for Android will look like
The main change will be the location of the top navigation bar, which will be moved to the bottom area of the screen, similar to iOS. The buttons to access chats, communities and calls are currently at the top of the screen on WhatsApp for Android, but this new interface changes their location. The internal chat menu popup will also be changed to resemble the one on iOS.
When will WhatsApp's design change?
WhatsApp users can already test the new interface in the beta version. To access this option, users simply need to download the latest version of WhatsApp from Google Play. The update will soon be available for all Android users.
The interface change is welcomed by some users, while others are mixed. However, there is no doubt that it will change the way we navigate WhatsApp for Android. So, are you looking forward to trying the new design?
