In the article about the WhatsApp beta for iOS update, we announced that WhatsApp was working on a new feature under development: a redesigned chat attachment menu. With this feature, users can experiment with a different way to share media with their chats and groups and, as we said in our previous article, this was definitely needed as the current chat attachment menu is outdated. Finally, after installing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS update, the feature is now available to some beta testers:

As you can see in the attached screenshot, WhatsApp worked on enhancing the chat attachment menu through a redesign for both light and dark themes: open any chat and tap the media attachment button to check if the feature is enabled for your WhatsApp account. In the previous updates, WhatsApp for iOS presented the chat attachment menu as a vertical list using an alert controller. With this new feature, users will be able to experience a fresh approach when selecting what to share, particularly because the old screen was very outdated since the first versions of WhatsApp.

In our opinion, this redesign was very necessary as the application continues to evolve, and there are a lot of new possibilities for being able to share different types of multimedia files in the future. Placing all those shortcuts in a horizontal line instead using an alert controller will allow us to save time when selecting the appropriate shortcut, by keeping the view clear and easy to navigate.

The new chat attachment feature is available to some beta testers that install the latest version of WhatsApp beta for iOS from the TestFlight app, and it is rolling out to even more people over the coming days.
