WhatsApp Dark Mode Finally On Its Way to Becoming a Reality - Update Available as Beta Testers for Android Users

WhatsApp is finally on the way of giving out the best feature to its users – the dark mode. Months before the official update, the users were seeing some highlights of the dark mode in the form of an app interface and code, but now that the feature is up for the update – what are you waiting for?

The new dark mode update of WhatsApp is available as the ‘Dark’ in the theme section from where you can easily turn on the new dark mode. After long waiting, WhatsApp is finally available in a dark theme. The whole application is now dark green in color with little contrasting colors here and there.

Before you move on to believe that it might be a permanent update, but it is only a beta tester for now. If you are not a beta tester, then you can register yourself as one from Google Play Store until the update is finally rolled out from a proper channel. Although that might not take a long time, hang in there!

We tested the dark mode on a Samsung device and found it super easy on eyes, however some finishing touches are still required from developer end, as the icon for "touch the fingerprint sensor" on lock screen page is still not clearly visible. (Update: In version 2.20.15 Whatsapp has made the touch icon more visible).

Much awaited dark mode feature is finally here

WhatsApp is one of the most versatile app of today’s time, making conversations and media-sharing hassle-free for people all over the globe. With over billions of users, the app is famous for introducing new emojis, updates and other features for user’s feasibility.

Also, Story sharing has further made life easier for people. Now everything is bundled in one single app – WhatsApp. Recently, it was in the news that the WhatsApp will be fueled with adverts that enraged users. Some went to an extent of saying, they will leave WhatsApp and move to other apps if adverts come to WhatsApp as well.

Being number one app, it was the only messaging platform that was missing a dark mode. From Instagram update to Facebook Messenger – dark mode is enabled in all the apps now, except for WhatsApp.

Zuckerberg realized it later, but at least he did!

All the fans of low light will love the new update due to excellent User Interface (UI) that comes with a dark mode. If you love dark mode, then it is definitely good news for you.
