The messaging service owned by meta, WhatsApp, is operational with another. The privacy entry point, in particular, has been moved to the root for ease of access. Since WhatsApp shared the news on Twitter last month, everyone can access it. We discovered that WhatsApp is introducing another similar change by rearranging the privacy and avatar settings after updating to the most recent beta update from the Play Store.

This screenshot shows how WhatsApp decided to switch the locations of the privacy and avatar entry points within WhatsApp Settings. It makes sense because creating an avatar is less significant than the privacy section. The team decided to make this small change to the Android app because the avatar entry point does not separate the account and privacy settings on WhatsApp for iOS.

What is Avatar?

Avatar is a digital image that a computer user can customize to their liking. The Whatsapp avatar was first introduced by Meta for Facebook and Instagram in the first month of this year.
