WhatsApp Messenger Beta for Android gets New Holo Redesign


SMS text messaging is on the decline thanks to third-party mobile messaging app like WhatsApp and LINE, just to name a few. WhatsApp Messenger is one of the popular cross-platform messaging apps available. You need not have to pay a dime for sending messages to your family and friends from your mobile device, except for the internet charges. 🙂

The latest beta version of WhatsApp Messenger for Android (v2.9.2363) comes with a new interface design. A new holo-themed interface, to be exact. The following images compare the interface between current WhatsApp and the new WhatsApp Beta.

Feel like trying out the new redesign, you can proceed and download the free APK file at WhatsApp website. Don’t download the app from Google Play Store, because the app hasn’t been updated to latest beta version.

Note that WhatsApp Messenger is only free for one year, to continue using the app after the free trial period, you need to fork out 99 cents/year.
