WhatsApp is now rolling out a notable change to the app's UI on Android smartphones. The Meta-owned messaging service has announced that it has moved the four navigation tabs at the top of the screen to the bottom. The updated visual interface has been enabled in the beta version of the app for the past few months and is now enabled for all users. The new design will also make it easier for users to switch between tabs while using the phone with one hand.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), WhatsApp announced the launch of the new bottom navigation bar on Android. The service posted images of the old interface, which had four tabs (communities, chats, status, and calls) above the chat list. With the latest update, users will see those tabs moved to the bottom along with the icons, while the order may be rearranged.

However, if you want to search for something, you'll still have to reach the top of the screen. WhatsApp for iOS also displays tabs at the bottom of the screen; there is a fifth for the settings menu.

While bottom navigation tabs may finally be rolling out to users after months of testing in the beta channel, WhatsApp is busy developing more features that could come to the app in the future.

The messaging service is also working to add new AI-powered features to the app. WhatsApp is developing a feature that will allow users to send text messages to create stickers using artificial intelligence (AI) in the application. Similarly, WhatsApp was recently seen developing AI-powered image editing features and a feature to ask questions on Meta AI via the search bar on WhatsApp. These features have not yet been rolled out to users of the stable and beta version of WhatsApp.
