WhatsApp updated with Material Design; download the apk now
posted by Alan F. / Apr 13, 2015, 9:19 PM
You will get to enjoy all of the new animations and changes to the UI of the popular app. Besides the new UI, WhatsApp's Android users can now make phone calls over the app without having to be called first.
And don't forget that WhatsApp is testing out integration with Facebook. The latter purchased the messaging app for over $21 billion and is now looking at ways to take advantage of the purchase. What is being tested now is a "share" button that is available right now only to Facebook beta testers. Clicking on the button allows Facebook users to share news with WhatsApp subscribers.
Check out some screenshots of the new green-tinged Material Design version of WhatsApp by clicking on the slideshow below.
Thanks for the tip!

Thing is though, material design just sucks overall. It looks amateurish. Kinda sad it made it over, and I'm hoping it doesn't make it over to other apps.

that doesn't seem like a material design. the new chat button doesn't hover on the right lower corner of the screen as its seen in material design app like messsenger, evernote, onedrive etc. Its the step in the right direction but not there yet.
