In the article about the WhatsApp beta for iOS 18.104.22.168 update, we announced that WhatsApp was working on a new interface for the app with new colors, new buttons, and the ability to filter chats. When we revealed the details regarding these features, they were under development to provide users with a more modern experience with these improvements. Recently, the WhatsApp for iOS 23.18.78 update was released on the App Store. While the official changelog doesn’t include information regarding which features this version contains, since WhatsApp didn’t update the changelog from the previous build, we just discovered that WhatsApp is rolling out a fresh button design to a limited number of users!
The official changelog still mentions certain features released in the previous updates of the app. In addition, even though it’s not mentioned in the official changelog on the App Store, we can also confirm that redesigned buttons are available to a limited number of users after installing this update. It’s important to note that this new style is also available in other sections of the app and it’s not restricted to the chats tab.
While other improvements to the interface aren’t available yet, WhatsApp just released a new button style to offer a sneak peek into the company’s ongoing efforts to enhance the user experience. It’s worth mentioning that some users who have installed the beta version of the app might also have access to the new revamped button style. Additionally, WhatsApp may explore different modern styles for the app buttons beyond what is shown in the attached screenshot, targeting specific users.
If you don’t have this feature, note that some accounts may receive it over the coming weeks, although it has not been indicated in the official changelog. Please stay ahead by regularly updating WhatsApp from the App Store and the TestFlight app to get this feature in the future in case you don’t have it after installing this update.
A fresh button design for the apps is available to a limited number of users who install the latest update of WhatsApp for iOS from the App Store. Make sure to install this update to enjoy a better user experience.
