Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp has made some changes to its interface while keeping user preferences in view to improve their experience.

Bringing its version up for Android phones, social media platform is rolling out feature that enables users to swipe between tabs and rounded menus, WABetaInfo reported.

Previous update included tweaked interface that brought bottom navigation bar to application, making it easier for users to switch to different tabs right from bottom of screen, but ability to swipe between tabs was removed.

This feature was removed as it did not align with guidelines of Material Design 3, which discouraged its implementation.

However, it seems like company is bringing ability back, making an exception after some users complained about its removal.

"WhatsApp introduced several improvements to interface in order to support Material Design 3. After installing WhatsApp beta for Android update, they released redesigned switches and floating action buttons that reflect Material Design 3 guidelines," WABetaInfo stated.

After installing update, some users may also experiment rounded menus which align with principles of Material Design 3.

However, only some 'Lucky' beta testers will be able to use swiping feature initially. It will be rolled out to more people over coming weeks.
