CHAT SHARE SHEET – EMOJI PANEL
Although WhatsApp primarily focuses on introducing improvements for their native Windows and macOS applications, the company continues to work on improving the web client by developing new features and enhancing the user experience through interface redesign. Specifically, if you are using one of the latest updates of WhatsApp Web and joined to the beta program, you may be able to experiment with a redesigned chat share sheet and emoji panel!
As you can see in this screenshot, the latest update brings two improved experience for users. The chat share sheet has been completely redesigned: the window is now more compact, and each icon is labeled. In addition, WhatsApp has also redesigned the emoji panel: the emoji panel previously covered the entire bottom section of the screen. With the latest update, the emoji panel, along with the sticker and GIF tabs, is displayed separately and in a smaller size.
We think these small adjustments further confirm that WhatsApp wants really to improve the user experience by including enhancements to the app interface. In our opinion, this commitment to continuous improvement reflects WhatsApp’s dedication to delivering a better user-friendly messaging platform.
The new chat share sheet along with the redesigned emoji panel is available to some beta testers that joined the official beta program of WhatsApp Web, and it is rolling out to even more people over the coming days.
