The screenshot shows three people on voice call. All these three windows have waveform animation. This will help participants to see who is chatting in real-time. The waveform will also be in different colours to help provide easy recognition. Below the windows, the app uses a pop-up window to house the call end button. It will also house the Mute button and handsfree option.
WhatsApp new feature for Business accounts
The WhatsApp Business accounts are also getting a fresh look. The instant messaging application will soon incorporate a feature from its parent company, Facebook. WhatsApp will allow Business accounts to add their cover photo on their contact page. This provides a new look to their entire page and also becomes an easy way to broadcast some basic confirmation.
This feature will introduce some level of synergy between the daughter and parent company (Facebook). Cover photos are used as big banners behind profile pictures. This will introduce a new aspect of personalization within the other-wise text-heavy interface.
