WhatsApp has been testing the dark mode since 2018. Now, recent reports, leaked images, and some tweets confirm that the feature will soon come out to the final version of WhatsApp, along with other functions.
WhatsApp Dark Mode Would Roll Out Soon
The most recent WhatsApp Beta update for Android, the WhatsApp Beta 2.19.282, has a new option called Theme Settings. This new section presents three themes – Light Theme, Dark Theme, and System Default.
“Finally, new hidden tracks about the Dark Theme and more details for Disappearing Messages (both under development). NOTE: These features are not available, and they will be enabled in the future,” WABetaInfor tweeted.
Accordingly, we should expect WhatsApp Dark Mode to roll out soon, maybe along with the next final version of the WhatsApp instant messaging application. Besides the Dark Mode and Light Mode (the standard WhatsApp theme), the third option, System Default, as its name suggests, will automatically set the theme of WhatsApp depending on that of your smartphone.

Other Features To Come Along With The New WhatsApp Dark Mode
Besides the upcoming WhatsApp dark mode, WhatsApp will also introduce other useful features. One of them, called Disappearing Messages, will allow senders to set a specific time limit for their messages. Once the time limit ends, the messages will automatically disappear. However, some reports say that this feature is still in its alpha version.
Even more, WhatsApp will soon introduce Contact Ranking, the possibility to hide muted statuses, Boomerang Videos, and support for voice and video calls via Google Assistant.
WhatsApp dark mode is the most sought-after feature. However, the other functions to come to WhatsApp looks interesting, too. They are designed to improve the user experience with the most popular instant messaging application in the world. We don’t know when these new features will roll out, but we guest it will happen soon.
