WhatsApp update: Striking new colour scheme now available in beta
- WhatsApp update: Facebook-owned company is getting a new colour scheme. It is brighter than the current offering.
WhatsApp seems to be testing a new colour scheme for its Android app. The changes were spotted in WhatsApp's Android beta app, which revealed a brighter colour scheme over the existing ones. You will get to see the new changes in the Android beta app. If things go well, the WhatsApp update is likely to be available publicly. As per the report, the latest change is visible on every major interface element, including the background and the send button. The new WhatsApp colour scheme is applicable in both light and dark themes.
The latest development comes from WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo, which reported that the changes were spotted in the WhatsApp for Android beta version 22.214.171.124. The new beta reveals a brighter colour scheme that is available on both dark and light themes. The green hue is now lighter in shade. It is noticeable when you put both the older and newer WhatsApp beta release side-by-side. WhatsApp is taking into account all the major UI elements to match with the new colour scheme. The top bar, background, and message bubbles all feature the new, lighter tone of green hue. Moreover, the icons in the Settings menu are also shifted from the earlier green ones to grey.
As per the report, there is a new colour scheme even for the ring appearing over status updates and the chat share sheet. The new WhatsApp beta also brings back the creation date for groups, which was earlier pulled by the company for Android users. However, it continues to be available on the iOS version of the app. WhatsApp has also changed the existing “Type a message” appearing on the chat bar with a new “Message” banner.
If you want to notice the recent changes, you can become part of the beta programme on the Google Play Store. Alternatively, you can also install the latest WhatsApp Android beta app by sideloading WhatsApp APK beta version 126.96.36.199 from APK Mirror.
