WhatsApp for Android is getting updated with a new colour scheme that is brighter over the existing one. It is actually a test for a lighter green colour for Android use.
The change is initially provided to beta testers for testing purposes, however, it would be available publicly if the testing goes fine (as per the required results).
The new colour scheme is applicable to both light and dark themes of WhatsApp and can be noticed from any of the major 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 22.214.171.124, as initially reported by WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo.
Flipmemes.com also gathered that although WhatsApp is still using a green hue, it is lighter in shade.
One will easily notice the change if you compare both the older and newer WhatsApp beta release side-by-side.
This update is visible across all major elements, including the top bar, background, and message bubbles.
There’s also a change in in the Send button and the icons in the Settings menu are also shifted from the earlier green ones to grey
