Dark mode for WhatsApp: everything you need to know

Dark mode for WhatsApp is expected to very soon appear, and we have managed to find out many tips and preview reports suggesting what it will look like when it arrives. In fact, the recent developments note, to receive the app, not one, but two different dark modes

Since the launch of Android 10 and iOS-13-both about their own system-wide dark mode, the developers were rushing to dark versions of their apps. Google Chrome, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter have all of the smart-dark options available, but so far WhatsApp has, stayed pale and interesting. The looks everything seems to be changing, however.

If you want to be the first to try dark mode for WhatsApp, when it arrives, we recommend joining the beta program, so that you will be able to test it before it rolls out globally. If you have an Android device, you can log in and download the beta through the Google Play Store.

The beta program for iOS is currently full, but it might be back at any time. If it does, you need to install TestFlight on your device, log in to participate in the program.

What to expect

According to WABetaInfo on the dissection of WhatsApp beta versions of the app developers are currently working on two different dark-mode and the optimization of new designs prior to release.

Even if you are a member of the beta program, you will not see an option to enable the dark mode, but trawling through the app-APK-files shows the various graphical elements that is used when it is finally released.

It looked originally like the new color scheme would be mostly dark blue/green instead of black or grey, and is automatically enabled if you have selected, your phone will be system-wide “dark”. The app splash screen is also expected that they will be darkened to prevent the problem in the case of some apps, where a person with dark mode is startled by an unexpected Explosion of white light.

Now, it seems, however, as have the designers changed tack slightly and are now developing two different dark modes, with a dark grey background and other with black.

It is possible that the black version is especially optimized for AMOLED screens. Black pixels on the screens are actually turned off, less power is consumed, and (at least in theory).

what apps stickers and emoji-menus have been updated, with a dark background, and the developers have worked hard to make the adjustment of the app-signature message bubbles with a new look that is both dark modes.

We also have a few other new features might arrive, along with the two dark modes, including the self-destruction of messages to be deleted after a certain period of time. Based on leaked screen grabs, it looks as if you are in the situation, messages will be deleted after a period of between five minutes and one hour.

Rival messaging apps, Facebook Messenger, telegram and Signal already offer a similar function, so it is an overdue complement to WhatsApp.

Beta versions have also shown to hide a new option, which will allow you to complete updates of muted contacts. Currently, if you are in the mute-contact, your updates will appear grayed out, but still visible. When the new update rolls out, you will be able to hide them and only see these if you choose.
