WhatsApp developers seem to be constantly working on adding new features along with improving the user interface of its apps on different platforms. According to a new report on the internet, Whatsapp has revamped its existing GIF search on its app while adding a new search button in its stickers section to help users easily search for their favorite stickers. This comes days after it was reported that the company is working on adding the continuous voice message playback in the app. The company is also planning to add a group calling shortcut in the group conversations on the app so that it is easier for users to make a group call.

The latest bit of information comes from the official Twitter handle of WABetaInfo. The tweet that revealed the changes in the user interface included two screenshots showing how the UI will look when the company rolls it out for users. This indicates that the company has currently hidden the UI changes even from its beta testers for Android and iOS. It is likely that the developers may enable the UI changes for beta users in the coming update.

This comes right after the report where National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) asked WhatsApp and Google to store all the UPI-based payment data in the servers inside India.

The report revealed that even though both the company still keep the UPI-related payment data in the country at the time of writing but even after that both the companies have a mirror copy of the data on their servers outside the country.
