Appreciations to WABetaInfo, we know that WhatsApp users who belong to the app’s Google Play Beta Program are beginning to see the new Dark Theme inside version 2.20.13. Though the Program is not currently accepting new signups, customers can download the APK individually to enable the Dark Theme possibility. As soon as put in, it is a simple case of navigating to WhatsApp Settings and then Chats to switch it on.
There are currently four options within the Display setting. The Light theme makes use of the standard black text on a white background, whereas the Dark theme means that you can manually change that round. System default mimics the system-wide theme set on Android Q phones and switches between gentle and dark relying on the time of day. The final possibility — Set by Battery Saver — can change the theme depending on your battery settings.
WhatsApp has been the holdout of Facebook’s three big standalone apps when it comes to dark mode. The messenger was the first to allow it again in early 2019, with Instagram the following suit in October. Although the Dark Theme is at the moment limited to beta variations of the Android app, it probably will not be too long till it makes it to a public launch — and presumably iOS 13 as well.
