WhatsApp Business beta for Android introduces the new dark splash screen

WhatsApp Business beta lets users link their accounts to external services.

WhatsApp users running beta version 2.19.311 already received the dark splash screen update a while ago. Whenever you open the app, the splash screen appears with a dark background instead of white. This is only applicable when the phone is running on a system-wide dark mode. WABetaInfo has now confirmed that the update is rolling out to WhatsApp Business beta.

Seen on the 2.19.117 beta update, WhatsApp Business beta has a new feature that will allow users to link their business accounts to external services like Facebook. This feature enables customers to go to the business’ Facebook page from its WhatsApp Business account.

Another update spotted in the beta was the removal of the Camera tab in the app. A new Home tab has been discovered in place of the Camera icon that lists down shortcuts to certain menus including Profile, Away message, Quick replies, Statistics, etc.

As usual, there’s no update to when these features will be rolled out in the public version of the app.
