A few weeks ago, WhatsApp started to roll out a new in-app camera design for iPhone users in the beta program. The Facebook owned platform introduced some changes for the in-app camera, removing the scrollable media bar. The bar was very useful because it allowed you to quickly send images and videos recently saved in your camera roll. Now, WhatsApp has reportedly started to roll out a new beta update for iOS users. As per a report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has submitted a new update through the TestFlight beta Program, bringing the version up to 188.8.131.52. As per the report, the company is restoring the new camera design with an update.
The report further suggests that the move comes after several users compared about after the previous update where the company removed the scrollable media bar. After the latest update, the media bar is again available for certain iOS beta testers.
This is not the first case where WhatsApp has restored an old feature. A couple of weeks ago, WhatsApp changed the interface of the contacts section for Android users who were using the beta version of the app. The Facebook owned platform divided the section in two parts – Frequently contacted and Recent chats. As the name suggests, the frequently contacted part shows users that are often contacted by you and the recent chats part shows users that were recently contacted by you. But last week, WhatsApp restored the old contacts list.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is restoring the old interface after facing backlash from users. The platform has started to roll out the old contact list interface again, but it may take some time before the update is available for everyone.
