We have our hands WhatsApp’s newest beta upgrade and compared the changes introduced by it using the most recent stable build (v2.19.34) of this program on Android. These screenshots show a difference, highlighting the movement of particular tools, new icons and the way information is displayed on the screen. The first noticeable change is the addition of a’Payments’ option on the main’Settings’ page which shows a record of payments and details of the linked bank account.

Opening the’Accounts’ section reveals that each choice currently has a dedicated pub, while the steady build lacks iconography from the sub-sections. Moreover, tapping on’Security’,”Change amount’, and’Two-step verification’ reveals that they also have gained redesigned icons too. The design of all options in the’Notifications’ segment stays the same however. Each of the resources in the’Help’ section also have been upgraded with committed icons.

Moving to the’Data and storage usage’, an individual can now see the net number of data sent and received under the’Network Usage’ text and the memory utilization status below’Storage’. This info interface has been scattered on the messenger program’s stable edition. Moreover, tapping the’Network use’ option shows a very different layout, with each parameter for example media, calls, and messages featuring an icon of their own, whereas the storage amounts are displayed on the right.

Additionally, the’Network Usage’ page now shows the memory usage status together with details such as time and date, as well as the total quantity of data sent and received by consumers. With the exclusion of’Payments’, it looks like the changes brought from the beta update are largely functional in character and were seen by WABetaInfo. The beta watcher also asserts the aforesaid tweaks will soon be rolled out via the stable station soon but a release date is yet to be shown.
