WhatsApp for the beta version of Android has now been updated along with the new logo of Facebook via Google Play Beta program. This news was announced by the company at the beginning of this month. The users can now be able to download the WhatsApp beta for the Android version 2.19.331. Not only this but also the brand has announced about the rebranding of Instagram as both WhatsApp, as well as Instagram, are the properties of Facebook. The new version of WhatsApp is also displaying more signs of dark mode which was being live in the beta version. Having said that, the new tag “from FACEBOOK” label is now up on both the WhatsApp slash screen and at the bottom of settings. Facebook did exactly what had announced a few days ago. This was specifically spotted by WABetaInfo in WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.19.331. The main reason behind introducing the company logo is to distinguish Facebook the company from the Facebook app and also to make it clear for the users which products come from Facebook.
The site also announced that Dark Theme for WhatsApp on iOS will be launched very soon. WABetaInfo even tweeted about the Dark Theme for WhatsApp with a picture which is showing that the feature enables on an iPhone. As per the tweet, Dark Mode will be live on iOS but there is no such information about the date of launch. The report also said that the Dark Theme is ready but there are few things which the company is working on such as the colours of the icons are needed to be adjusted. Facebook has always used its social media network’s wordmark for representing the company as a whole. It is now far more expansive as a parent company and Facebook felt it was important to distinguish itself from the social media network it was built upon. So the newly launched logo had made use of the custom typography and is specifically designed for clarity to create a visual distinction between the app and the company. Facebook mentioned, the motive of including “from Facebook” is to let its users know that its apps are having the shared infrastructure. Facebook’s chief marketing officer, Antonio Lucio mentioned, “ People should know which companies make the products they use.” Instagram is having the pink and orange colour Facebook branding which is similar to the Instagram logo. Keeping in mind the same thing the colour of WhatsApp logo will be green.
