Recently WhatsApp was spotted testing the new in-app camera interface. Now the chatting platform appears to be working on a redesigned interface when you place a voice call. This is said to be under works for both Android and iOS platforms. However, even beta testers can’t see the changes yet.
But, according to a report by WABetaInfo the new call interface will enhance both individual and group calling experience. Citing information from its sources the WhatsApp beta tracker has also shared some screenshots to convey how the redesigned interface differs from the current one.
As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp is redesigning the interface in preparation for a future update in order to make it more compact and modern, while also organising the available space: the new redesign will look nice, especially when placing group voice calls.
Despite the fact that the screenshot was taken on WhatsApp for iOS, the same redesign is planned for a future update of WhatsApp beta for Android. All we have to do now is wait for a future update that will allow beta testers to test out the new interface.
WhatsApp is also testing out new visual feature indicators for end-to-end encryption on WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS. As we already know that the chats and calls are end-to-end encrypted. But the team will bring indicators in the Status and Calls section, claiming that your status updates, personal and group calls are always end-to-end encrypted, and this will never change. The same notice will be added to WhatsApp’s Chats section, and a new update for WhatsApp for Android will support the same feature at a later date.
This new visual addition is currently unavailable due to development, but it will be available in a future update.
The Meta-owned chatting app also appeared to be experimenting with a new Android camera interface. The Switch Camera button has been redesigned, and the Flash shortcut appears to have been relocated.
WhatsApp has released the 18.104.22.168 beta update, which includes a redesigned in-app camera interface, according to Wabetainfo. The new in-app camera will be available in a future update, as we previously stated, and is currently being tested.
You’ll be able to open recent media by tapping the image in the lower-left corner, and the Flash and Switch Camera buttons will be redesigned.
