Dark mode sure saves battery and now Facebook-owned WhatsApp is working towards bringing this feature for Android devices.

“We are happy to be the first to announce that WhatsApp has finally started to work on the Dark Mode for Android! We found the first hidden tracks in the 2.19.82 update: nevertheless, the feature is not available yet for everyone,” WABetaInfo, a fan website that tracks WhatsApp updates, reported late on Tuesday.

The messaging service is working on this feature in this update in order to ensure the best bug-free experience for users before it enables them for everyone.
