A new WhatsApp beta for Android that allows users to make some changes to the interface when creating text status updates is officially rolled out.

According to the American instant messaging service, the small changes to the interface for text status updates, are available to certain Android beta testers that install the latest updates of the app. The new feature is marked as a compatible update, but some users may receive the same feature in some previous updates as well.

WhatsApp disclosed the information today when it rolled out a new update through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version up to

Given the latest updates, the instant messaging service has moved the emoji, text, and background color selector to the top of the screen, making the section seem the same as it does on iOS.

However, for users who have the new caption view, it will be available when making a text status update. As such, you can instantly modify the audience for the current text status, but you will need to access WhatsApp Privacy Settings to change who can get future status updates.

WhatsApp is a famous cross-platform text messaging app that allows users to send and receive messages and make phone calls using only an internet plan. The most widely used messenger on the planet has more than two billion monthly active users.

WhatsApp is, without a doubt, the best messaging app. Video and Voice Calls are two of WhatsApp’s most important features. This means you’ll be able to call people on your contact list who are also using this app for free.

Recall that, yesterday, we reported that WhatsApp is working on a new desktop app for macOS so that users can link their Android or iOS device to WhatsApp for macOS in the future, with no release date yet. Stay connected with TechGenyz for more updates on the new features.
