WhatsApp, a leading messaging platform, is ushering in compelling features via its newest beta version, 184.108.40.206, exclusive to Android users who are part of the Google Play Beta Program. The update heralds significant keyboard alterations and unveils a novel feature titled "Community Settings" for a select group of beta testers.
At this stage, only a specific group of Beta testers can engage with the reimagined WhatsApp functionalities. One standout upgrade is the keyboard's transformation. WhatsApp has evidently invested substantial effort into enhancing the user interface, refurbishing various elements and adjusting their positioning. Consequently, users can now seamlessly glide the keyboard upwards to expose a comprehensive list of emojis, aiming to make conversations more dynamic and enjoyable. To confirm whether their account has been updated, users can simply open a chat and observe whether the revamped keyboard materializes.

Moreover, an exclusive collection of beta testers will be the initial group to experience the reconfiguration of the media sharing and emoji keyboard buttons. Although this shift is currently confined to a select user set, it may gradually permeate a broader audience in the future. Apart from the keyboard amendments, WhatsApp has also debuted the "Community Settings" feature. Presently accessible to a very limited number of beta testers, this feature equips community administrators with the ability to control who can append groups to their community. By default, this authority resides solely with community admins. However, they can alter this setting to permit community members to add their own groups, thus affording community owners the ability to craft an environment tailored to their specific needs.
The reworked keyboard and Community Settings feature are presently accessible to a particular group of beta testers who have downloaded the latest WhatsApp beta for Android update via the Google Play Store. Nonetheless, WhatsApp intends to steadily rectify any potential bugs and subsequently disseminate these updates to a wider user base in the ensuing weeks. Owned by Meta, the company persists in prioritizing user experience enhancement, a commitment evident in these latest updates. Users can anticipate a more fluid and enjoyable messaging experience courtesy of the overhauled keyboard.
