If you are a Daraz app user, you might have noticed the UI changes from the evening of January 16. The theme of the app has refreshed with a new orange & teal color combo.

The arrow accentuates the focus on progress and fast deliveries. Whereas the “play button” is showcasing the continuous & dynamic content experience for users.

At the same time, it signifies a shift to a personal experience that will allow us to create greater connectivity with both buyers and sellers on our platform,” said Mr. Mikkelsen, the CEO of Daraz group.
