WhatsApp Beta Update Introduces The Dark Mode Option

I don’t know about you, but using the apps in dark mode is so much better. Artificial light is quite disturbing for the eye, and sometimes you even get these sorts of headaches. Many developers have updated their apps to enable the user to switch it on dark mode. However, as silly as it sounds, the most downloaded app around the world does not have such an update. Yes, we’re talking about WhatsApp.

WhatsApp Beta testers can now enjoy the dark mode option

WhatsApp users have no choice but to use the app at full brightness; however, we have great news! The beta version of WhatsApp is finally bringing the dark mode at the disposal of the users. How do we know about this news? Well, the WhatsApp insiders from WABetaInfo were kind enough to inform the internet on the night of January 22. Great job for the beta testers who were able to switch to dark mode after updating WhatsApp!

If you join the beta testers team, you will be able to do it do before the rest of the world can do the same. So if you are interested, the version number of the latest update is 2.20.13. All you have to do is download the WhatsApp APK from external sources and backup your chats before installation as a precaution. By doing so, you will reinstall the WhatsApp and have a free hand in enjoying the new load configurations from the servers.

How to enable dark mode in WhatsApp Beta?

After updating the app to its WhatsApp 2.20.13 Beta version, the dark mode feature should be active for you. However, if it is not functioning for you, you will have to wait for the official introduction of the dark mode in WhatsApp.

WhatsApp could include the dark theme switch in the chat settings. Here are your options:

  • Dark: the new theme with black background
  • Bright: same theme as always
  • Based on the power-saving mode: WhatsApp goes dark when the battery power is low
  • System default: WhatsApp follows the global scheme

Although the WhatsApp dark mode will be available around the world at some point, the theme is not going to turn black but dark blue, while the chat bubbles will be highlighted in blue or dark green.
