WhatsApp is working on a new interface with a white top app bar and a green app name, and it will be available in a future update of the app.

Specifically, WhatsApp has planned to redesign the top app bar, making it white. While the revamped interface is still in development, WhatsApp keeps working on improving it before the official release to beta testers.

Similar changes are also under development on WhatsApp for iOS. This provides further confirmation that WhatsApp aims to bring both apps in line with a similar interface and the same features.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp also started rolling out the ability to send HD videos through a new toggle in the app earlier this month. Recently, it also rolled out support for sending high-resolution images. With the WhatsApp for Android update, users can share videos in 720p resolution instead of the standard, and default, 480p resolution.
