WhatsApp tests new interface with changed colours


WhatsApp has initiated testing for a redesigned interface on Android after months of development.

The updated version of the popular chat application ditches the traditional green-coloured top bar and introduces a white top bar within individual chats and in the main chat list. The redesign aligns with Google's Material Design 3 guidelines and enhances the appearance of the dark theme.

WhatsApp has also included new 'outline' icons for various buttons in the app as part of the latest beta update.

Testers who have installed WhatsApp beta for Android are beginning to see the redesigned interface.

In the updated version, the top bar displays a white background with the WhatsApp text in green. When the dark theme is enabled, the top bar transitions to black with white text.

WhatsApp has also made adjustments to the green accent colour used in the app, making it appear brighter on both light and dark themes. Notably, this affects the colour of elements such as the floating action button (FAB) in the app.

Furthermore, WhatsApp has replaced the solid icons for voice and video calls within individual chats, as well as the camera icon on the main chat list, with outlined versions of these icons. These outline icons were previously spotted in version of WhatsApp beta for Android.

The iOS version of WhatsApp is also expected to receive an updated colour palette and the new outline icons. While the Android version has shifted the top bar from dark green to white, the iOS version lacks a green-coloured top bar.

In addition to the design changes, WhatsApp is working on implementing new chat filters, including All, Unread, Contacts, and Groups. These filters will improve chat management and are anticipated to be released to users on the stable version of the app in the coming months.
