WhatsApp keeps working on improving the user interface of the Android app. After releasing a tweaked interface with the bottom navigation bar to some beta testers after installing the WhatsApp beta for Android and WhatsApp beta for Android updates, we discovered that WhatsApp is introducing another tweaked interface for a certain section of the app. In fact, after installing the latest WhatsApp beta for Android update, some beta users may experiment with redesigned group settings:

As you can see in this screenshot, the new interface is clearer and intuitive. Instead of opening an additional window every time an option is selected, it is possible to enable or disable it directly from this screen by toggling the switch, resulting in a time-saving. In addition, group administrators can decide whether to allow or disallow other participants to add people to the group with the new update.

The recent release of the new interface for the group settings section by WhatsApp serves as another proof to their dedication in enhancing the application’s overall experience, not just in terms of features but also in terms of visual appeal. In fact, this update demonstrates their ongoing commitment to continuously improving the application, ensuring that users appreciate the modern design.

The new interface for the group settings screen is available to some beta testers after installing the latest WhatsApp beta for Android update from the Google Play Store, and it is rolling out to more users over the coming weeks.
