WhatsApp Officially Rolls Out Dark Mode for iPhone & Android

After some weeks in beta mode, WhatsApp Inc has finally released the much awaited dark mode feature for all android and iPhone users.

The new WhatsApp dark mode feature will be available as soon you update the app from either the google play store or Apple store depending on your device’s platform.

Android 10 and iOS 13 users will be able to use dark mode when dark mode is the system wide setting on their device while Android 9 users can toggle between themes in WhatsApp settings.

Quoting the blog post on the WhatsApp blog, “Dark mode for WhatsApp offers a fresh look on a familiar experience. It’s designed to reduce eye strain in low light environments. And we hope it helps prevent those awkward moments where your phone lights up the room.”

The new update is focused on readability and also helping users focus on the information on the screen.

WhatsApp dark mode for desktop is surely next 🙂
