This is a messaging app with over 1.5 billion users and the hint of it having dark mode made users get hyped up. The application for Android has been updated to version 2.20.13 which brings the much-awaited dark mode feature. So if you're a WhatsApp for Android beta tester, you'll come across a dedicated Dark mode switch in the app's settings that'll allow you to enable the most-anticipated Dark mode in WhatsApp. Well, good news at last: the latest beta will finally let you give dark mode a spin. The folks at Wabetainfo learned recently that the latest version of WhatsApp submitted by developers through the Google Play Beta Program contains one important new feature - the long-awaited dark theme.

We regret to inform some particular display geeks that it's not an AMOLED blackout theme, just a paint job that's more friendly to use at night.

If you already have system-wide Dark Mode activated, then you can also select the System default option.

I'm going to get fined for whatever the code was and he gets off the hook because he just makes a call because he feels like it". One point after Shapovalov walked away from the chair and play continued, he swapped out his racket, which raised some eyebrows.

The WhatsApp light theme is for the people who love the look of WhatsApp original app and don't have any mood to replace with anything else. There is also a system default option for Android 10 users that identifies the theme used by the system and changes them accordingly.

In any event, the new color scheme applies to the chats menu, settings pages, calls tab, contact list, and several other menus.

Furthermore, the users of Android Pie or lower will be getting the option of Set by Battery Saver which can be selected for automatic selection based on the battery saver settings.

The addition of dark mode to the beta channel means that it won't be long till we see this being rolled out to everyone in the near future.
