WhatsApp is always working on new features to make its chat platform more engaging. A new report has revealed a feature that completely changes the look of Android apps. WhatsApp is reportedly testing a cleaner UI (user interface) for the Android app where it can move tabs to the bottom of the screen for easier access – just like it is on iOS.
according to a report by WABetaInfoChat app owned by Meta is planning to introduce a navigation bar at the bottom of its Android app. That bottom bar will consist of four tabs, namely Chats, Communities, Status, and Calls. Placing all the different sections of the app at the bottom of the screen will make navigation easier, but it will also bridge the gap between WhatsApp’s Android and iOS apps.
The new interface is now visible in WhatsApp beta for Android version 22.214.171.124. If you are a beta tester, updating your apps to the latest app can bring the new UI to your phone. But if you are a regular user then you will have to wait. WhatsApp usually puts new features and design changes to a rigorous test by asking the developer community to find bugs in these beta versions. After satisfactorily verifying a beta version, WhatsApp proceeds with the process of making that beta version stable.
How to become a tester?
If you can’t wait patiently for the new UI on WhatsApp, then you have to become a tester. You can join the WhatsApp beta program by visiting the Google Play Store. Just search WhatsApp and scroll down to find the Beta Program option. If there are slots available in the program, you’ll see a Join button, allowing you to become part of the testing community. It is possible that the app says that the beta program is full, in which case you cannot join the beta program.
