After a long wait, the messaging app is finally able to launch dark mode for its users. Though the messaging app has taken so long for incorporating Dark Mode in WhatsApp, all the other companies, including YouTube, were successful in launching in before. However, the company had announced prior that the dark mode launched by the company will be actually dark and not the greyish tone like other tech giants launched for their platform.
This Native Dark mode of WhatsApp is called Dark when we search for it in the theme selection interface. The entire UI of the messaging app turns dark green. The home screen and the messaging menu are now covered in dark color. However, when it comes to the conversation window, only the chat bubbles are dark, whereas the background has remained unchanged.
Before we go into details of enabling dark mode, it should be noted here that Dark Mode is available for Beta Testers only and it has not yet launched for the stable version.
