WhatsApp tests larger status thumbnails design: What to expect
According to reports, Meta-owned WhatsApp is developing a new layout for Android status updates that should be available to both iOS and Android users.

Meta was the owner A popular feature tracker has revealed that WhatsApp is testing a new design for the status updates tab on its Android app. Users should ultimately be able to access the updated design on iOS and Android smartphones.

Furthermore, rumors suggest that users may soon be able to browse status updates without completely opening them. This update comes at the same time as WhatsApp fixes a bug that was causing some Android users’ emoji keyboards to crash.

The WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.24.12.20 has the new status update UI, according to the feature tracker WABetaInfo. This update was sent to a smaller set of beta users in previous editions, but with the most recent release, it has been made available to a wider audience.

The tiny circular preview of the status updates has been replaced with a larger thumbnail, according to a screenshot posted by WABetaInfo. With this improvement, users might be able to see a piece of the status update without opening it by only clicking on the thumbnail. The position of the status updates has not changed; they are still located beneath the search bar at the top of the screen.

The update also changes the appearance of the WhatsApp channel recommendation panel. The status update page used to have a “Find channels” option at the bottom that showed suggested channels. The arrangement of this has now been changed to be horizontal.

Beta testers who download the most recent WhatsApp for Android beta update from the Google Play Store can now access these updates. It is anticipated that the new features will become available to more users shortly.

In the meantime, the messaging app implemented stringent security measures, blocking almost 7.1 million accounts in India in April 2024. This action is a part of WhatsApp’s continuous effort to stop abuse and uphold the integrity of the platform.

Interestingly, 1,302,000 of these accounts had already been proactively banned prior to any user complaints being made. This emphasizes WhatsApp’s proactive strategy for stopping abuse, which uses data analytics and cutting-edge machine learning algorithms to spot and report questionable behavior patterns.
