WhatsApp v2.19.45: What’s New?
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.
You can now see the net amount of data sent and received in the ‘Network Usage’ option and the memory usage in the ‘Storage’ section. These are absent on the app’s stable version. Also, the menu’s have a very different layout than what existed before and each parameter having an icon of their own. The release date of this update for the stable version hasn’t been announced yet, but it may be available shortly.
