WhatsApp update brings Android app with Material Design appearance




WhatsApp has released an update to its Android app with altered appearance. The messaging has the appearance of the chat app on Google’s customized Material Design Idea for Android 5.0. The update is not yet in the Play Store.

Who wants to try the update with the new look, can do so by through the site of WhatsApp the installer to download and install. There seem to be no other significant changes to be made to the app.

The update with the Material Design saw it coming already briefly. The web version of WhatsApp has that design since the beginning. Although WhatsApp has taken elements, the app does not follow all the guidelines of Google. While Google is a big plus sign at the bottom right image set to open a new chat, WhatsApp has therefore the right button in the menu bar.

WhatsApp is the largest chat app from the Netherlands, with an estimated approximately nine million users. Estimates for Belgium are not known.
