How To Get WhatsApp Web Dark Mode Now?

Users don't need to wait for the official rollout and can switch to dark mode on WhatsApp Web now, notes WABetaInfo. Thales, a member of its Discord Server Community, has come up with a trick that allows users to enable dark theme. Here's how to do it.

How To Enable WhatsApp Web Dark Mode

Firstly, users will need to open the WhatsApp Web on their browsers and link it with their mobile app. This can be done by going to the mobile WhatsApp > Settings > WhatsApp Web and scan the code, which will automatically open to the web version of your chat.

Next, if you wish to switch the WhatsApp Web to dark mode, right-click on the window and click on the 'Inspect' option at the bottom. A string of codes will open on the page, giving users the choice to edit the console. Here, users will find a string dubbed 'body class=web', which is the original theme of the web version. Here, users need to replace the 'web' to 'web dark' and press Enter.

This will automatically turn WhatsApp Web into a dark mode platform. Users should note that refreshing or closing the web version will immediately switch it back to a light theme. We understand that it could be time-consuming to repeating this procedure every time you switch to WhatsApp Web.

Hence, it's advised to wait for the global rollout of the dark theme, which could be out in a few weeks. Once WhatsApp launches the dark theme globally, it should work seamlessly irrespective of the browser you use. Also, a software toggle switch is expected to change the dark theme settings within the Inspect option shortly.
