We are already used to updates that address some issues introduced in a previous version. In this case, WhatsApp is fixing an issue from the WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update that wrongly placed the start new chat button in your chats list:
In the latest beta update, WhatsApp has finally fixed the issue. Note that there may have been fixed other issues about that floating button in other sections of the app.
In addition, in the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android 184.108.40.206 update, WhatsApp was working on a new yearly reminder for their Terms of Service in India. This was needed due to new regulations in India (India’s Information Technology Rules 2021) and WhatsApp has rolled out the notice in the past days. More beta testers may now notice a green dot in WhatsApp Settings that invites the user to check the reminder. This may be also available to some users after installing the WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update, but more people in India may receive the notice after installing the latest beta. This is not exactly a feature, but at least you know what the green dot is for.
