WhatsApp’s latest TestFlight beta for iPhone includes a couple of user interface tweaks as the social network continues to make small changes to an already hugely popular app.
According to a new report by WhatsApp watchers WABetaInfo, the latest version 188.8.131.52 release is now available to beta testers. While the update doesn’t seem to have any big new feature updates but does add support for a darker dark mode via a couple of small interface changes that are available to iOS 15 users.
The company is now releasing the WhatsApp beta for iOS 184.108.40.206 update, which brings the official support for the latest iOS update, bringing some changes about the interface:
As you can see in this screenshot, the toolbar is totally dark now if no other UI elements are close to the toolbar, and the same applies to the navigation bar in WhatsApp Settings. In other words, the theme is darker now. Note that the changes are only visible if you’re using iOS 15
It’s surely only a matter of time before these same tweaks are available to everyone via the version of WhatsApp that can be downloaded via the App Store, although it’s fair to say that people are unlikely to notice anything huge.
WhatsApp is one of the best iPhone and Mac apps for people who need to stay in touch with those using Android devices. Those people don’t have access to iMessage, making third-party apps like WhatsApp and Telegram vital.
