The camera shortcut on the main interface will be returning on the Android app.
WhatsApp update 2.22.19.7 will place the camera shortcut right next to the search button.
The camera shortcut was earlier removed to make way for the communities tab.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp is also playing catch-up by allowing group chats to display profile pictures next to messages.
WhatsApp is also reportedly working on a feature allowing users to view their friends' status within the chat list.
