Dark mode is one of the most requested features on WhatsApp and is finally available and easy to implement.
WhatsApp dark mode is a new design for the hugely popular messaging app, which swaps its traditional palette of light gray and green for darker shades that are designed to emit less glare at night. It doesn’t replace the current look, but is available as an option for anyone who wants to use it. There are several reasons why you might want to try it.
First of all, you might be among the many people who find dark backgrounds easier to look at for a longer period of time, or at night. It just looks cool, and makes a refreshing change from all-white interfaces. I tried it and it was superb.
This is how you can now manually set dark mode on WhatsApp, or have the app match the system theme automatically. Here’s how you can get started with dark mode on WhatsApp.
- Open WhatsApp from the app drawer or home screen.
- Tap the action overflow menu (three vertical dots in the top right corner).
- Hit settings
4. Select Chats.
6. In the Choose Theme dialog box, select Dark.
7. You should see the interface switch to a dark theme.
Do you think there are other ways to enable dark mode on WhatsApp?
