Features of Whatsapp v 2.12.38 (Material Design Update)
The main interface with the three tabs is now bounded by a top menu bar with a uniform dark green color. The Menu bar collapses when you scroll down or from side to side, and the new icons for search, making a new call, sending a new message, and settings, are all white. A new circular white bubble indicator (not pictured) shows up next to the tab’s titles when there are unread messages or missed calls.
When viewing a contact’s or group’s details, a hero image is used with the most predominant color taken and applied to the transparent status bar. You can pull the image down to reveal it completely, or scroll to show more information.
The chat screen has got new colors with a smaller message box and a floating button to send a voice note that animates into a regular send button when you start typing.
When you record a voice note and decide to dismiss it, the red microphone jumps up and goes into a trashcan. It’s delightful.
The Settings have also been Materialized, with a cleaner layout, and selection boxes in the same hero color as the entire app.
WhatsApp did a pretty good job in giving all new modern look to the popular messaging app. The new interface won’t confuse any old-time user, but it will still delight avid Android fans who wanted a more modern design.
