The constant evolution of the WhatsApp instant communication platform now brings us a new interface for its Android application. It is, in fact, the biggest aesthetic change made to this app since its launch in 2009.
This renovation aligns the aesthetic department of the WhatsApp application with its main competitors and makes it easier to use, especially on large screens. However, users are reporting stability issues after the update.
WhatsApp brings its menus to the bottom of your smartphone
The aesthetic change that we are now announcing integrates the version 126.96.36.199 from the beta channel of WhatsApp for Android. It means that if you are on the stable channel of this instant communication platform, you still do not have access to the new interface.
As you can see in the images shared by WABetainfo, the changes apply to the positioning of the WhatsApp application menus. Options for conversations, communities, statuses, and calls are now at the bottom of the screen.
This change is intended to make it easier to use this app. Now it will be more comfortable to switch between the different categories of the WhatsApp app, especially on devices with large screens.
Crashes stalk the availability of the new interface
Unfortunately, the distribution of the revamped WhatsApp interface on Android faces some obstacles. Reports from various users show that accidents It happened after opening the app.
These crashes are apparently random, making it difficult to find the root of the problem. Even so, those responsible for WhstApp have already confirmed that they are aware of the problem and are working to provide a solution quickly.
However, affected users can try some of the processes listed below to try to resolve this instability:
- Uninstall and reinstall the WhatsApp application
- Clear cache and app data
- Go back to the previous version of the WhatsApp application
The positive part is that these problems only affect the beta version of WhatsApp, reiterating the relevance of this channel. Now we are waiting for the problems to be solved, with the certainty that the new interface will not reach all the users of the application without everything being optimized.
