This app version is Whatsapp 2.12.38 which is currently in beta phase and is not yet live on the Google Play Store. It can be downloaded from its official site or you can download it from here.

The microphone button changes to 'Send' button with an animation when you type on the android keyboard. The smileys got more brighter and have better contrast that why they seem to have darker colors. The chat bubble and text input field is also changed.


3. Profile Picture : The profile picture is by default open in a bigger view when you tap a contact to check details. The profile picture collapses when you scroll up and comes in its full view when you scroll down. By tapping on the profile pic you can either save or share the picture with others.

4. Image Selector : The image selector from gallery is totally white in color which was previously black.
