WhatsApp camera UI changes for iOS beta

In this article you will know about the changes WhatsApp has introduced for the WhatsApp in-built camera on iOS. A leading news portal on WhatsApp has released a screenshot of the old and new version. In the screenshot you can see that the developers team had redesigned the switch camera icon.


Additionally they have also removed the horizontal media bar present at the bottom of the screen which contained recent pictures of your gallery. Now you can directly open your gallery with a new button placed in the bottom left of your display. This new UI will provide you a little more privacy while taking photos. Currently when you swipe up, six of your previously taken personal images could be seen by other people. This update prevents this.

However this change comes with its own pros and cons. In the horizontal media bar you could quickly select what you wanted to share where as in this new version you no longer have direct access to your recent pictures and you need an extra step of tapping to photo gallery. There is one more small change you can see when you look at the icon that enables you to switch between cameras. As the feature is in testing period more activations are in the line in coming updates.

According to reports the new changes are already available to beta testers. But you can expect more changes till you get the final version of this feature. For more news on recent developments be with us.
