LONDON: Dark Mode has long been rumoured to come on WhatsApp. Some bits of the feature even made it to the older iterations of WhatsApp’s beta on Android. The stable version, however, never got the feature despite a lot of anticipation. Now, WhatsApp’s latest beta version on Android has revived hopes for the Dark Mode.
According to WABetainfo, WhatsApp’s new 2.19.282 beta version comes with a new section called Theme Settings. The new section is buried under Settings. Here, the app allows users to change the WhatsApp theme to different modes. Light theme is the usual white theme that’s available for WhatsApp forever. A “System default” automatically recognises the theme of Android that has been set by the user and changes accordingly. The “Dark Theme” is the one that inverts colours.
