WhatsApp Revamps the Navigation Bar UI on Android, Here’s How to Check Status on WhatsApp

WhatsApp for Android has finally received a notable home screen interface ever since the application was released for Android devices. Since the layout is new for Android users, many people are wondering how they can check the status on the platform. Worry not, here are the steps to check status on WhatsApp after the new iOS-like navigation bar UI on Android.

The new UI looks very similar to the app’s iOS interface, which WhatsApp has been testing for Android devices since last year (2023). The new UI changes the chats, calls, communities, and status tabs to the bottom of the screen. WhatsApp has not added the settings tab on the bottom like on iOS devices, but it’s still there in the three-dot menu for Android users.
