NEW COLORS

There is a refresh today: WhatsApp is changing a lot of colors on their application for Android!
The changes are mostly visible in the chat screen, where you can see a different color for bubbles (for both light and dark theme), the send button and the background color for the status bar:

For the light theme, WhatsApp has also updated the color for the navigation bar:

There are also other elements that have a new color: the ring for status updates, the wallpaper might appear darker, new icons for the chat share sheet, etc…
New colors are available today for beta testers. Be sure to install the latest update in order to see them.
The update also brings back the creation date for groups, that WhatsApp had previously removed, and “Type a message” is now “Message” for several people (other users already had this change in a previous update).
