After an eternity, WhatsApp has recently started rolling out the much-awaited dark mode to its beta users for Android. This change will come with the latest version of WhatsApp beta (2.20.13).
WhatsApp Android Dark Mode
As reported by WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp beta has the new WhatsApp theme feature in the app setting menu. If you want to check if your copy of WhatsApp has this unique feature enabled; Now head over to WhatsApp Settings > Chats and then look for Theme option in the Display section.
However, it is still unknown whether this new theme WhatsApp on WhatsApp Web Dark Mode will also get the WhatsApp dark mode theme or you can say WhatsApp black theme.
In the new Theme WhatsApp option, WhatsApp allows users to choose between the three options, i.e., “System Default” “Light” “Dark” as expected. Moreover, the new dark mode in WhatsApp themes works across the application, including the entire Settings and Chats page. (Including other features like dark bubbles and more). As per now, only WhatsApp Android Dark Mode is currently being rolled out to beta users only.
To get this, you’ll need to update the beta version of WhatsApp. And if you’re already not a beta tester. You should know that the beta access for WhatsApp is currently full in the Play Store. However, you can download the latest beta version from the APKMirror, but keep in mind, downloading from a third party website is always a risk. But WhatsApp themes download is not possible, for that you have to use third-party apps for that.
Enthusiasts claim the dark theme modes will be more comfortable on the eyes in environments with low light. And this WhatsApp night mode can also improve the battery life of devices with OLED displays. Users will have the option of setting theme WhatsApp dark mode permanently on or off. You can also set it to enable automatically as dictated by Android’s system dark mode or battery settings.
Some of you might not find the new feature on the latest beta version of WhatsApp themes, uninstalling, and reinstalling the app might help you. However, doing a full backup of your app is highly recommended before you go for the beta version of WhatsApp for android.
