CHAT ATTACHMENT MENU
In the article about the WhatsApp beta for iOS 184.108.40.206 update, we announced that WhatsApp was working on bringing a redesign for the chat attachment menu. As we explained in the mentioned article, a refresh for this part of the interface was definitely needed as the interface was really outdated in terms of appearance, and it will finally offer a more modern and intuitive experience to users. However, thanks to the WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update, we discovered that WhatsApp is also working on bringing a similar redesign for the chat attachment menu on Android:
As you can see in this screenshot, it is easy to understand that WhatsApp is currently working on a redesigned chat attachment menu as it is different than the current interface. In our opinion, the new interface is definitely clearer and it offers a better user-friendly experience. In addition, we think the tweaked chat attachment menu will definitely help users navigate in such menu in case more options will be added to this sheet in the future.
The new chat attachment menu is under development and it will be released in a future update of the app. As always, we plan to publish an additional article on this website when we have further details about the feature to share with you.
