WhatsApp has seen numerous tweaks to its design over the years, with the last major change coming in 2021. Now, the company has refreshed the app again. While some of the changes have already been implemented in the iOS and Android app, there are also a few new ones.

Today, WhatsApp announced that it is updating the look of its platform to help keep it fresh, simple and accessible. To do this, the firm has applied a number of changes, one of the most notable being a new color palette. In addition to having a more consistent green palette, WhatsApp says it has also increased its use of neutral colors, which allows it to be more selective about where and how green is used throughout the app.

The changes made to the application in the last update

The app’s dark mode also gets a notable update. WhatsApp has increased contrast and now uses deeper tones to make dark mode darker and less tiring on the eyes.

In addition to these color tweaks, it looks like the chat icons, artwork, and background will also be updated. Icons will now have a more rounded, more contoured style, while illustrations have new animations. Meanwhile, the team has refreshed the doodle for the default background of chats.

You’ll be able to see these changes in both the Android and iOS apps. However, there are some new additions that will be exclusive to one or the other. One thing that will be exclusive to iOS is a new attachment layout that introduces an expandable tray for sending media, surveys, documents and more. On Android, you’ll now see a navigation bar at the bottom. WhatsApp says the addition of this bar has allowed it to design chat filters to be at the top of the chat list, allowing people to quickly find conversations without having to scroll through their entire inbox.
