WhatsApp has implemented a Dark Splash Screen in the WhatsApp Messenger beta for Android 2.19.311. The Dark Spash Screen is already visible for everyone having an Android version that supports the Dark Mode.
In the update for WhatsApp Business, WhatsApp has added the same redesigned Dark Spash Screen:


We published some information about the Linked Accounts feature in an old article.
In this beta there are new hidden references about this feature, that will be available in future, and we finally know more details.
The Linked Accounts feature will allow to link your account to external services, for example, to Facebook, so your customers can easily find your account!

As usual, we have no details when this feature will be released. We will announce it when the feature is ready!



A long time ago, WhatsApp has added, in both iOS and Android apps, the Camera tab. A lot of users didn’t like it, but WhatsApp has never removed the tab.
Today an important news has been found. In future, WhatsApp will completely remove the Camera tab in the Business version (so WhatsApp Messenger will continue to have it), replacing it with a new Home tab!
But, what is the new Home tab? The Home tab will contain all important shortcuts for features that WhatsApp Business offers!
Here you can see a preview:

We have no details when WhatsApp is going to release an update that brings this new tab, however you can see that the Home tab is ready, so an update might be available soon.
Stay tuned with us, we will announce when new details are available!
