WhatsApp has been actively tweaking its popular messenger service since the last few years. Of late, the platform has seen some massive updates, whether in the form of a Picture-in-Picture window for all YouTube video links or the new slide to replay feature. WhatsApp is also scheduled to get a major update in terms of security, with the iOS version already receiving a TouchID or FaceID verification while logging into the app. While this update will take some time to be implemented for Android users, WhatsApp is coming up with something else to satisfy its Android users. 

The update is now available for WhatsApp Beta users and has the build number v2.19.45. The update brings about significant design changes in the settings menu for the popular messaging app. It should be available in a stable update to the rest of the users soon. The update doesn’t introduce a new feature or settings altogether, but rather tries to beautify certain aspects of the menu. There are now icons to each option in the settings menu and the network usage page is also redesigned completely.

The beta version of this update focusses on giving the settings menu of the app a design overhaul. ‘Accounts’ section now has a dedicated icon for each of the submenu. Options like ‘Security’, ‘Change number’, and ‘Two-step verification’ have also gained redesigned icons. The layout of all options in the ‘Notifications’ section remains the same though. All the tools in the ‘Help’ section have also been updated with dedicated icons.
