We have our hands WhatsApp’s new beta upgrade and compared the changes introduced by it using the most recent stable build (v2.19.34) of the program on Android. These screenshots show a side-by-side difference, highlighting the movement of particular tools, new icons and the way data is displayed on the screen. The first noticeable change is the addition of a’Payments’ choice on the main’Settings’ page that reveals a history of payments and details of their linked bank account. The addition of Payments alternatives comes in time for the rollout of WhatsApp Pay to markets outside India.

Launch the’Accounts’ section shows that every option now has a dedicated pub, while the stable build lacks iconography from the sub-sections. Moreover, tapping on’Security’,’Change amount’, and’Two-step confirmation’ reveals they also have gained redesigned icons too. The design of all choices in the’Notifications’ segment remains the same however. All the tools in the’Help’ section have also been upgraded with committed icons.

Moving to the’Info and storage usage’, an individual can now see the net amount of data sent and received below the’Network Usage’ text and the memory utilization status below’Storage’. This info interface is absent on the messenger program’s stable version. Moreover, tapping the’Network usage’ option shows a very different layout, with every parameter for example media, calls, and messages comprising an icon of their own, while the storage amounts are displayed on the right.

Also, the’Network Usage’ page now shows the memory usage status together with details like time and date, as well as the whole quantity of information sent and received by users. With the exclusion of’Upgrades’, it looks like the changes brought from the beta upgrade are mostly functional in nature and were spotted by WABetaInfo. The beta watcher also asserts the aforesaid tweaks will soon be rolled out through the secure station soon but a release date is yet to be revealed.
