Sneak peek of WhatsApp’s redesigned Android app with new look buttons and layout refresh

WHATSAPP is about to undergo a major design overhaul that will bring a new button style and even a fresh shade of green.

Let’s take a look at a leaked sneak peek of what’s to come.

A new green color is set to be introduced for both light and dark modes

Despite all of WhatsApp’s updates over the years, it has remained largely the same visually.

But now it’s getting a sleeker, more modern facelift, as images published by WABetaInfo show.

From below, the scroll bar in dark mode is a slightly lighter gray than other uses of the color on the platform.

This minor change provides some separation from both the chat list and conversations

WhatsApp users also get updated chat bubbles for dark theme users.

A new green color is set to be introduced for both light and dark modes.

Although these changes are being made to the Android app, observers have been quick to point out that iPhone users won’t be left out either.

However, it is not yet clear what the new look will look like on iOS devices.

However, according to WABetaInfo, similar improvements were found in the iOS beta test version.

The Android app update is still in development. So don’t be surprised if you open WhatsApp and find the same old design.

The new and improved UI isn’t even ready for beta testing yet.

So it’s really just a small taste of what’s to come – at least for now.
