I’m used to publishing a lot of concepts on my Twitter account, but today I want to talk about a new concept made by a follower.
|Concept about?||Chat Bubbles|
|Platform?||WhatsApp for Android|
|I’ve installed the latest update but I don’t see chat bubbles, why?||Please, read the headline: this is a concept, so it’s not a real WhatsApp feature.|
|Previous news?||WhatsApp is redesigning chat bubbles on iOS|
Yesterday we talked about a chat bubbles redesign on WhatsApp for iOS (under development), so this is the best moment to talk about a concept on WhatsApp for Android, having the same name: chat bubbles!
Do you remember “chat heads” from Facebook Messenger a lot of years ago? Chat bubbles are a very similar feature implemented on Android 11 and newer versions: they allow you to “bubble a conversation” that floats on your screen, so you can quickly open it.
To bubble a conversation, developers need to support this feature and it’s not available for WhatsApp right now. For this reason, a follower, Braian Dario Vargas, has decided to share a concept that reveals chat bubbles for WhatsApp:
[Request] Android 11 chat bubbles compatible with WhatsApp.
(These are just edited images to show you how they would work on Android 11+) This is a native feature not developed on WA yet. #ChatBubbles #WABubbles #BubblesForWhatsApp pic.twitter.com/fuv9ZLB2F8

This is not a feature under development, as we are used to doing, but sharing this concept we hope to see it implemented on WhatsApp for Android in a future update. Sharing a concept is like submitting a feature request: we cannot ensure WhatsApp will implement it, but it’s a good way to get noticed.
If you have a concept about WhatsApp, you can contact me on Twitter, and be sure to follow me to discover all other changes implemented on WhatsApp beta for Android, iOS, Web/Desktop and more!
