WhatsApp is working on Dark Mode feature on its Android app. Even though there’s no official word on roll-out timeline, the feature has been spotted in several beta updates lately. It appears that WhatsApp is still perfecting Dark Mode before the launch.
WhatsApp’s Dark Mode Theme will be automatically enabled or disabled depending upon your Battery Saver settings. The Light theme is presumably the way we have been using WhatsApp so far. The Dark theme, as the name suggests, is likely going to be what we hope to see in the app. The third theme option – Set by Battery Saver – is based on your phone’s battery saver setting and it would presumably turn the app dark when the battery level of your phone drop below a certain level.
According to a report, the new update will replace the old “System default option, for unsupported Android versions.” WhatsApp’s Dark Theme “set by battery saver” will be available to users running Android 9 and older versions. Users with Android 10 will see the previously spotted “System default” option — the app automatically changes the colour scheme depending upon the device scheme chosen by the user.
According to the screenshot shared by WABetainfo, users will get three theme options – “Set by battery saver, light, and dark.” As we have previously explained, the Dark Mode is ready but currently not available yet. However WhatsApp doesn’t stop to amaze us, continuing to improve it with new features, like the Battery Saver option on Android 9 and earlier,” said the website.
