WhatsApp is Developing a New Status Update UI

By Consultants Review Team Tuesday, 26 March 2024

It was revealed last month that WhatsApp was working on significant redesigns for the tray that displays status updates. According to reports, users' status updates would seem like cards, just like those on Facebook. Furthermore, according to recent sources, WhatsApp is now altering not just the status update tray but the whole user interface. According to recent rumors, users of the messaging platform may soon be able to quickly switch between the different kinds of information they choose to submit as their status.

As shown by the most recent WhatsApp beta for Android update, which is now live on the Google Play Store, WhatsApp is reportedly investigating new features to improve users' experience with status updates, according to a report in WA Beta Info. The update demonstrates WhatsApp's work on creating a new status update interface.

A graphic that the outlet posted suggests that WhatsApp is working on a new composer for status updates that would let users choose different media formats to publish. Users may find the sharing choices for text, videos, and photographs at the bottom of the status update screen. They may choose the kind of media they wish to share with ease from this point on. More precisely, WhatsApp appears to be moving the text and media selection from the status updates tray right into the composer.

Among the many advantages of this design modification is the elimination of the steps required to transition between text and media. Users may switch between different content kinds without ever leaving the current screen thanks to the direct integration of this option within the composer. Furthermore, it is expected to reduce ambiguity and improve user interaction by providing a more logical and unified interface for communicating status updates.

A future version of the app is anticipated to integrate the newly developed interface for sharing status updates.

WA Beta Info made a hint about a potential upgrade for picture sharing in a recent article. According to the article, users will soon be able to alter photographs from within WhatsApp thanks to an AI-powered image editor. The article also said that the basic code for an AI-driven picture editor was included in a recent Android beta upgrade ( But this feature is still under development and hasn't been released for beta program members to try yet.

An early version of the capability within WhatsApp's Android image-sending interface was shown in a sneak look offered by the site. Users were shown a recognizable green symbol next to the HD icon, offering selectable choices such as Expand, Restyle, and Backdrop, all of which promised special editing possibilities.
