In the article about the WhatsApp beta for iOS 18.104.22.168 update, we announced new redesigned chat attachment feature. With the tweaked chat attachment menu, WhatsApp aimed to offer users a more modern experience when choosing what to share in the conversation, introducing icons arranged in a grid rather than in a sheet. After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.214.171.124 update, which is available on the TestFlight app, we discovered that WhatsApp is introducing new icons in the chat attachment view!
As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp redesigned some icons in the chat attachment view, and the changes are available to all beta testers who have installed the latest update. The introduction of the new icons representing image sharing, contacts, documents, and camera is likely due to recent interface changes to the interface of the app that involved the use of new colors. The selection of these new icons aligns with the recent color changes of the interface, as announced in the article regarding the WhatsApp beta for iOS 126.96.36.199 update.
We believe that WhatsApp’s commitment to revamp the chat attachment menu by updating its icons reflects a particular approach to refining the user interface. These incremental changes serve as a foundational step in their commitment to enhancing user experience, aligning with a broader objective of continual improvement over time. By prioritizing even the minor details such as introducing tweaked icons, WhatsApp showcases a dedication to evolving the interface, ensuring that every aspect resonates with user convenience and modern design. In our opinion, this focus on minor details creates a user-friendly approach, where even small changes make the app appear more appealing. In addition, WhatsApp is now releasing an introductory screen to announce that WhatsApp beta for iPad is available to current beta testers.
New icons for the chat attachment view are available to all beta testers who install the latest update of WhatsApp beta for iOS from the TestFlight app.
