WhatsApp introduced a redesigned interface for the chat list, providing a clear and more user experience for iOS users. Additionally, the update includes a new way to access the broadcast contact list and create new groups. This new feature is available to a limited group of Beta testers.
The latest beta version improved the design of the chat list interface, especially since they intended to make the interface clear by removing the two entry points related to the broadcast list and new groups. These beta testers can personally explore and experiment with the updated chat list and its new functionality.
The new entry point or button for accessing the Broadcast list and creating a new group in WhatsApp has been removed. A group of Beta testers is testing an alternative location for a new group creation entry point above the search bar. It’s important to note that this alternative location may be a part of the test, and there is no confirmation whether it will be available for all future users. The users who do not see this new group entry then, WhatsApp provide a tool tape a small popup message to inform them about the option to create a new group within their contact list.
