WhatsApp has been working on a Dark mode for quite some time now. However, the feature is stuck in a behind-the-scenes beta version of the app with no clear details of when the public will receive it.
A while back, fears emerged that WhatsApp had ditched the feature, but then it re-emerged in a newer beta version. In the latest beta 2.19.139, the tipster behind these developments, WABetaInfo, has bumped into something else.
Apparently, it’s possible that WhatsApp could debut Dark mode feature as Night mode. It is also possible this could simply be a different setting or theme meant to spring to action at sunset. Here are some screenshots of the Chats, Status, and Calls sections.
At this point, it’s hard to tell what WhatsApp is really cooking, but it looks certain that Dark mode/Night mode is indeed coming.
