WhatsApp Dark Mode Rolling Out for Beta Testers on Android

Last week, WhatsApp added a new privacy setting, which will let users decide whether they want to join a group on the messaging platform or not

Website WaBetaInfo, which follows developments with the beta version of the app on Wednesday revealed that WhatsApp has started rolling out dark mode to users of its beta version for Android app.

Those who are using the beta version of the company’s Android app, can now download the version 2.20.13 of the app on their smartphones to get hands on the feature.

One can follow this path to enable dark theme on the app: Settings > Chats > Display > Theme > Dark Theme.

Along with the “Dark” option, one will reportedly see the “Light” option that is the normal theme, another will be “Set by battery saver” which is expected to automatically switch to light/dark theme and one may also see an option of “System default” which identifies the theme of your smartphone and sets the app’s theme accordingly.

WhatsApp is also testing a new beta update for iOS users which would bring features like hide muted status update, splash screen and app badge improvements, among others.
