WhatsApp Gets a Design Makeover With New Colour Palette, Icons, and More

WhatsApp New Features

Meta-owned instant messaging platform WhatsApp has undergone a design revamp, with the redesigned version now being rolled out to Android and iOS platforms.

Meta has stated that the new design imbues the messaging platform with a fresh, approachable look while enhancing its simplicity. The update introduces new icons and illustrations, a revamped color palette, improved navigation, and more. Here are the details:

WhatsApp: New Color Palette

The redesigned WhatsApp features a consistent green palette instead of the previous blue and green mix, providing a more cohesive user experience. Meta has highlighted that this new color scheme aligns with the WhatsApp green logo, facilitating synchronized color pairing throughout the app.

Furthermore, Meta has opted for more neutral colors within the app, strategically employing green accents. Additionally, WhatsApp introduces a darker “Dark Mode” with higher contrast and deeper tones to alleviate eye strain in low-light conditions.

New Icons and Illustrations

WhatsApp has redesigned its icons with a more rounded aesthetic and refreshed illustrations to complement the new iconography. The addition of new animations aims to lend the app a playful visual appeal. Moreover, the default chat background now features new doodles.


The Android version of WhatsApp now boasts a new bottom navigation bar, enhancing user convenience by placing tabs closer to the user’s thumb for easier single-handed operation. On iOS, the app introduces a new attachment layout for sharing pictures and videos, replacing the full-screen menu with an expandable tray.

This redesign enables users to access available features more clearly when sending media, polls, documents, and other content.

Chat Management

WhatsApp has recently introduced chat filters to streamline the process of locating and accessing important chats. Users can now choose between three filters – all, unread, and groups – to better organize their conversations. With the navigation bar relocated to the bottom of the screen, these filters now appear at the top of the inbox in both iOS and Android apps.
