WhatsApp to get New Colour Scheme That Works With Both Dark, Light Themes for Andriod

WhatsApp for Android is receiving a new update with a new color scheme brighter than the existing one. The change is initially providing to beta testers for testing purposes. However, it would be available publicly if the testing goes fine (as per the required results).

The new color scheme applies to both light and dark WhatsApp themes and can be noticed from any significant interface elements, including the background and the send button. The new WhatsApp beta also brings back the creation date for groups.

The changes are initially available through WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.21.18.1, as originally reported by WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo.

The most visible change is the new color scheme available on both dark and light themes. Although WhatsApp is still using a green hue, it is lighter in the shade. You'll notice the change if you compare both the older and newer WhatsApp beta release side-by-side.

The update of the color scheme is visible across all major elements, including the top bar, background, and message bubbles. The change is also there for the Send button. Further, the icons in the Settings menu are also shifting from the earlier green ones to grey.

WABetaInfo has also noticed the new color scheme, even for the ring appearing over status updates and the chat share sheet.

The new WhatsApp beta version also brings a creation date for groups. It was there earlier, but the Facebook-owned company pulled the date silently for Android users. The creation date is, however, available to iPhone users for quite some time.

WhatsApp has also changed the existing "Type a message" appearing on the chat bar with a new "Message" banner. It also got changed for some beta users previously.

You can check out all the changes by downloading the latest WhatsApp beta on your Android device. The app is available to users participating in the beta program on Google Play. Alternatively, it can be installed by sideloading WhatsApp APK beta version 2.21.18.1 from APK Mirror.
