Surprise! Dark Mode Is Coming To WhatsApp
WhatsApp is one of those internet messaging apps which consistently keeps on working on improvements to provide enhanced messaging experience. Now, we have heard that the company's next approach is going with the addition of a Dark Mode. Generally, the dark mode should be an essential feature by default in all applications. YouTube also rolled out dark mode in its app which makes things more enticing for users. Let's see some more details on the upcoming feature.
WhatsApp Is Working On A Dark Mode In Its App
Following the path of YouTube, Twitter, Reddit and more, WhatsApp seems to be working on a new dark mode view in its application. According to the information provided by @WABetaInfo on Twitter, there are hints available for a potential dark mode feature in the upcoming WhatsApp updates. A user has also created a 'concept theme in the same thread.
There are several advantages of using a Dark theme in apps. For one, it's easy on the battery life. OLED displays needs more power to push colors other than black, so we might see an improvement there. Additionally, it's a perfect setting for night time. The glare of the bright screen poses discomfort in dark environments. As a plus, dark mode just looks way better than the standard view as it provides a stealthier look.
I’m happy to exclusively give the good news: WhatsApp is finally working on a Dark Mode! It’s a dream ?

Be patient to see it out, hoping it will be FULL OLED friendly for Android phones, iPhone X and newer!
