In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android update, we announced a new interface for the community info screen when opening it from the communities tab, aimed to help new users quickly find what they need from a community. After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS update, which is available on the TestFlight app, we can confirm that some beta testers may now experiment with the same revamped interface!

As shown in the attached screenshot, a new tweaked interface is available when viewing the community info. This section includes two tabs that let users promptly access both the community and announcements information. This improvement to the interface definitely helps community admins have immediate control over their communities, without switching to different sections. As always, an entry point to edit both group and community settings is available to community admins in this section.

As we said in our article when the new community info interface was released with the WhatsApp beta for Android update, though these changes may not individually stand out significantly, they definitely collectively contribute to the enhancement of the entire application. We think that introducing a revamped interface for the community info, WhatsApp aims to provide users with an additional revised tool for quickly accessing community details and settings. In addition, the changes make this section easier to understand to the new people that are going to explore WhatsApp Communities.

The new community info screen is available to some beta testers that install the latest update of WhatsApp beta for iOS from the TestFlight app, and it is rolling out to even more people over the coming days.
