After its installation, Android and iOS device users will be able to experience the refreshed interface aimed at enhancing the user experience with the app, according to the leading news website for iPhone, iPad, and Mac, 9to5Mac.

What changes will occur

First and foremost, notable changes are observed in the color palette of the interface. Now, the green color has become accentuated and is used to highlight notification icons and buttons.

In the Android version of WhatsApp, more significant changes are observed: the navigation panel has been moved to the bottom of the screen, making the app more similar to the iOS version.

As for the dark mode, WhatsApp claims that the change in the color palette will provide higher contrast and richer dark shades to reduce eye strain in low-light conditions.

Developers note that users expressed a desire to see a darker mode, so it was implemented in the app.
