Also, it comes with a new VoIP screen with dark elements. Notably, it is said that this screen surfaces only when a user gets a WhatsApp call. These changes have been spotted in the latest WhatsApp beta version for Android with the version number 2.19.354, claims WABetaInfo. And, these are yet to be rolled out to all the users of the app.

Latest WhatsApp Features

As per the latest report, a series of changes has made its way to the Android beta version of the app as mentioned above. The new update includes avatar images that are also known as placeholder icons for individual profiles, broadcasts, and groups with a gray background. These new changes will be visible to users if Dark Mode is enabled.

Notably, the default avatar images on WhatsApp have a green background that matches the dark green stripe at the top of the messaging app.

Apart from the new avatar images, the Android beta version 2.19.354 as mentioned seems to have rolled out a new VoIP screen dark element that supports the Dark Mode. This will continue to appear with the green background, which exists now in the VoIP screen. However, there will be a darker tint of green, which is claimed to reduce eyestrain.

It is believed that WhatsApp will make further interface-level changes to the app before rolling out the much-awaited Dark Mode feature to all users.

As said above, these latest changes rolled out to the Android beta version are not visible publicly. Those who have enrolled to take part in the beta version can update the app to get these features. It is also possible to try out these new Dark Mode changes by downloading the latest version of the app from APK Mirror.
