WhatsApp channel verification check mark updated from green to blue to match Facebook, Instagram


WhatsApp channel verification check marks will soon be updated to a new colour on Android. This visual change was spotted by a feature tracker on a recent beta version of WhatsApp, which suggests that it will soon be rolled out to all users in the future. This will make the check marks displayed inside the app look like their counterparts on Instagram and Facebook, Meta’s popular social networking app.

A post by features tracker WABetaInfo says that a new blue checkmark is already rolling out to testers who have downloaded the latest version of WhatsApp beta for Android.

WhatsApp’s updated colour scheme will improve consistency across the company’s apps, making it easier for users familiar with Facebook and Instagram to identify whether the entity they’re connecting with is authentic.

Although the redesigned verification tick is currently rolled out to WhatsApp beta testers on Android, it may also be rolled out to testers on iOS in the coming days or weeks. It will eventually come to the stable update channel for all platforms including WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp Desktop.

Meanwhile, Meta is reportedly testing AI integration with WhatsApp’s messaging feature. The Meta AI chatbot is designed to help users edit text and reply to images.

The platform is also testing a video note mode for the WhatsApp camera as well as an ‘Imagine Me’ feature to create personalised illustrations via Meta AI.
