The popular instant messaging platform WhatsApp, owned by Meta, adds new icons to the chat attachment and presents them in a grid arrangement instead of a sheet. It gives users a more modern experience when choosing what to share in a conversation.
“After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 18.104.22.168 update available on TestFlight, we noticed that WhatsApp brings new icons to the chat attachment view,” WABetaInfo reported.
The instant messaging app redesigned some icons in the chat attachment view, and the changes are available to all beta testers who have installed the latest update. The introduction of new icons for photo sharing, contacts, documents, and camera is likely due to recent UI changes to the app’s interface, which included the use of new colors.
“We believe that WhatsApp’s commitment to revamping the chat attachment menu by updating its icons reflects a special approach to user interface refinement. These changes are an important step in their commitment to improving the user experience,” WABetaInfo said.
Additionally, WhatsApp is now releasing a preview screen to announce that WhatsApp beta for iPad is available to current beta testers. The new icons in the chat attachment view are available to all beta testers who install WhatsApp beta for iOS from the latest update TestFlight.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is also rolling out a feature that adds a shortcut to open AI-powered conversations from the Chats tab. The Conversations tab has a new button above the icon to start new conversations. With this button, it is possible to open AI-powered chats quickly, making the process faster and even easier for users.
By implementing a separate shortcut, users can quickly access AI-based conversations directly from the Chats tab without opening the contact list.
The feature, which adds a shortcut to open AI-powered chats from the Chats tab, is available to some beta testers who install the latest WhatsApp beta update for Android from the Google Play Store, and will roll out to more people in the coming weeks. .
