WhatsApp Beta Update For Android Brings Back The Annoying Splash Screen Bug

WhatsApp is now considered to be one of those apps used by billions of smartphone users every day. No doubt people spend a significant amount of time on WhatsApp to chat with their family and friends. Thus, it is pretty much obvious that any noticeable bug can be frustrating for most of them.

Previously, we reported about an annoying bug in WhatsApp that was noticed by almost everyone. The social media giant apparently ignored a slight glitch on WhatApp’s splash screen. However, the company fixed the problem in the next release.

It seems like the problem came back along with the latest WhatsApp beta release. Some people noticed that the WhatsApp logo now appears slightly on the left of the splash screen. Moreover, some other android users reported that three additional logos appear at the top of the screen as well.

Although it’s a minor issue and WhatsApp engineers can easily fix it in the upcoming update. But the new splash screen bug may force some users to mistakenly think that their phone is broken. Several users who noticed the strange problem shared the images on Twitter. WABetaInfo also reported the splash screen bug in a tweet:

Isn’t WhatsApp Focusing Too Much On The Splash Screen?

Some users think that WhatsApp needs to focus on the implementation of Dark Mode rather than focusing on the splash screen.

One user wrote, “Like emphasizing so much in the splash screen instead of focusing on the dark theme lol laughs.”

If you have already installed the latest beta update, you may notice the glitch now. You just need to look carefully the next time when the app is loading on your phone. The impact of this issue is yet not clear and it remains to be seen if WhatsApp releases an emergency update to fix it.

As a reminder, it is not the first time that WhatsApp has released a buggy update. The social media company recently addressed a security flaw in the app that allowed hackers to misuse your information. Considering the frequency of these updates, some people are now looking for alternative options.
