WhatsApp for Android all set to get a new look soon


WhatsApp is making few changes in its UX/UI and these changes are now available. The WhatsApp v2.17.93 beta for Android relocates the attachment button, and finally makes the voice and video call buttons separate, something that was exclusive only to iPhone users previously.
WhatsApp calling buttons separated

First, when WhatsApp video was launched, the video calling feature was hidden underneath the call button on the top right edge. By clicking the 'call' button, two options used to pop up - one for voice call and one for video call - and you had to press the one you prefer. Now, WhatsApp is testing a separate video button in the latest beta version of Andriod to make the video calling button more visible to the users, and Android Police was the first one to spot this change.

The new WhatsApp video call button for Android replaces the attachment button that used to sit next to the call button, and the attachment button has shifted to the bottom alongside the text bar. It sits right beside the camera icon which has also been redesigned. This enables the user to access all of the conversation related buttons in one place, and users will no more have to head on to the top edge just to attach an image or a file. For iPhone users, the attachment button is already alongside the text bar at the bottom of the screen.

Remember, these features are only available in beta for now, but will be launched for all Android users soon. If you can't wait, join the WhatsApp beta community in Google Play.
