WhatsApp Dark Mode Available For Android Beta: Here’s How To Enable It


WhatsApp is a popular instant messaging app with its users spread all over the world. But this Facebook-owned messaging platform lacks a few features that are seen on its rivals. To resolve this issue and make it on par with the other messaging apps, the company is rolling out many new features to it. One such feature is the Dark Mode, which has its own benefits and fans.

WhatsApp Dark Mode has been in the rumor mills for long. For months, it was speculated that this feature will be rolled out to the beta version for testing and now it seems to have finally made its way to the Android beta version 2.20.13.

With this feature, users of the app can switch to the dark theme, which is like dark gray and not pure black that is seen in some apps. Chats are seen with a dark background and messages appear in green bubbles.
