We have been hearing about a dark mode for the popular messaging service for a while now, but finally, we are seeing some progress. A report suggests that the beta version of WhatsApp has just been updated to version 2.19.82 and according to the app teardown, we can confirm that the Dark Mode is not far from official release.
The feature has leaked in the past on multiple occasions and it seems to have finally reached the final stages of development. WABetaInfo has managed to dig in and has found the Dark Mode in the 2.19.82 beta update and shared some screenshots as well. The mode has made its way to the notifications settings, data, and storage settings, chats settings, and account settings. Notably, the tipster suggests that the new Dark Mode will not be as useful on OLED displays as it isn’t completely black, rather very dark grey in colour.
