The WhatsApp new icon actually looks like a camera while the older one seemed identical to the Instagram icon. In addition to the new camera icon, the Facebook–owned company is also issuing a fix for a bug. The fix addresses an issue where the app crashed while listening to voice messages. Only a small part of the users was experiencing this issue. Now, WhatsApp has issued a fix to ensure that the app does not crash while listening to voice messages.
WhatsApp beta version 2.19.328 comes after the release of beta version 2.19.327 last week. It brought a default dark wallpaper that will be part of the dark theme roll out. The WhatsApp had also previously redesigned the dark splash screen, which can be enabled as part of system-wide dark mode. Dark Theme remains one of the most anticipated features on WhatsApp and the company is closer to adding the feature.
