The much-awaited WhatsApp Dark Splash Screen feature is also underworks. But it remains uncertain if it'll show up or not for the time being. Although the tracker spotted the Dark Splash Screen feature, it still hasn't been enabled for users yet, indicating it could still be under development.

The WABetaInfo says that "some users might get the Dark Splash Screen, even if the Dark Theme is not enabled. It's a bug that also makes the bubbles dark, sometimes." The site further notes that the Dark Mode isn't listed yet as there's no release timeframe yet. This could further suggest it is under development in varied beta releases.

WhatsApp New Features

The upcoming WhatsApp beta has many new features to offer. Some of the other new features include a self-destructing messages feature, where users can set a time and the message will automatically get deleted. The update will also have the payments feature, which is already under tests here. There's no release date for the WhatsApp update for the time being, but with more new features being spotted, the roll out is imminent.
