WhatsApp has released an updated version of its native desktop app for macOS with a new sidebar interface. The new sidebar features icons instead of text labels, making it more intuitive and visually appealing.
The new sidebar icons have been designed to match the look of the macOS interface, creating a cohesive user experience. With the new icons, users can find what they are looking for more easily and quickly, without having to rely on text labels.
The new sidebar also saves space and reduces clutter as the icons take up less space than the text labels, leaving more room for the app’s content. The updated sidebar is very similar to the one implemented on the native WhatsApp app for Windows, signaling the company’s efforts to create a consistent interface across all native apps.
The new sidebar interface is currently available for some beta testers who have installed the latest version of WhatsApp beta for macOS from the TestFlight app. The feature is expected to roll out to more users in the coming days.
