WhatsApp has introduced a splash screen in the WhatsApp Beta for Android version 2.19.297. Users who are enrolled in the WhatsApp Google Play beta programme can get this feature by updating the app to the latest version. Also, a dark splash screen is also in making and will be rolled out soon, but there is no exact timeframe for the release of the dark splash screen.
Previously the splash screen was introduced in WhatsApp Business beta for iOS 184.108.40.206. The Android 2.19.297 beta update also brings support for the ‘Payments’ feature to Indonesia. Currently, only the wallet feature will be supported. Users can also sideload the app from APKMirror to test out the feature.
