It took a long time, but WhatsApp dark mode is finally available for beta testing on Android.
The new option discovered by WABetaInfo is available to all users (initially not only feared for users with Android 10 as we do) and replaces the app's usual white and teal design with dark gray Tones.
Despite early signs that could have two WhatsApp dark modes, the beta contains only one setting. The new gray design can help improve battery life (darker pixels usually consume less power than white ones), but not as much as a really black background for phones with AMOLED screens where black pixels don't consume any power at all.
There is no way to tell when dark mode will no longer be tested, but we know that WhatsApp developers have spent a long time experimenting and refining the details, so hopefully it won't be long ,
The recent announcement that WhatsApp has posted plans to include ads in your group chats is also good news, meaning that you can enjoy the new look for the foreseeable future.
How to enter WhatsApp dark mode
How to enter WhatsApp dark mode: You I have to register for the beta program via the Google Play Store (the beta program for iOS is currently full). There is no need to reinstall the app on your phone. The next time you update you will receive the current beta version.
To check which version you currently have and to update it if necessary, press and hold the app icon and select "App info". Then select "Advanced" and scroll down to the version number. This should be at least 2.20.1
If you currently have an earlier version, open WhatsApp in the Google Play Store and look for an "Update" button. If one is not visible, you can download the APK for 2.20.13 and install it manually.
When you're done, open the app, tap & # 39; Settings & # 39; and choose & # 39; Chats & # 39 ;. Above you will find a new option & # 39; Theme & # 39; with three options: & # 39; Light & # 39 ;, & # 39; Dark & # 39; and & # 39; System default & # 39 ;.
If you are using Android 9 or lower, you can also select "Set after battery saver", which will cause the app to automatically go into dark mode when your phone is in battery saver mode. Light it and try it.
