CHAT ATTACHMENT MENU
The WhatsApp beta for iOS 126.96.36.199 update is available on TestFlight. This update brings bug fixes and general improvements, but we spotted a new feature under development planned to be released in a future update of the app. In particular, we discovered that WhatsApp is working on a new redesign of its attachment menu for iOS, which is expected to bring it in line with the attachment menu already available on WhatsApp for Android. The tweaked interface is under development, but it is expected to bring some significant changes to how iOS users interact with the attachment menu in the future:
As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp is working on tweaking the chat attachment menu by bringing a redesign. Currently, WhatsApp for iOS displays the chat attachment menu as a vertical list by presenting an alert controller but, thanks to this feature, it is clear that WhatsApp plans to implement a different attachment menu by bringing a row-based attachment menu in the future, where there is a certain number of attachment options per row.
In our opinion, a refresh for this part of the interface was long overdue due to its outdated appearance, and it will finally offer a more modern and intuitive experience. In addition, as more and more options are added to the attachment menu, it becomes definitely important to ensure that the interface always remains clear and easy to navigate.
The new chat attachment menu is under development and it will be released in a future update of the app. As always, we are going to publish an additional article on this website when we have further details to share with you.
