WhatsApp Dark Mode not yet in the current version

However, the Dark Mode is not yet integrated in the current WhatsApp version. This could not prevent some beta users from accessing dark mode under the “Themes” menu item. The “Themes” point can therefore be found in the “Chats” settings of WhatsApp. Here, curious users will find the new menu tab “Display”. As soon as the Dark Mode is integrated in the new WhatsApp version, the mode should appear here. There will also be a new “wallpaper function”. This function allows users to choose between three types of display.

WhatsApp Dark Mode: Messenger gets a new start screen

What else can WhatsApp users expect from dark mode? According to information from WABetaInfo, the messenger should get a new start screen. This comes in a dark design, provided the cell phone is switched to night mode. In addition, the written form of the WhatsApp logo now adapts to the spelling of the parent company Facebook. However, it is still unclear when the dark mode will actually be integrated into WhatsApp, because the company has not yet announced a release date. Messenger users still have to be patient.
