Facebook is running to the dark side, not because of its new privacy mishaps. It is working to perform a ‘dark mode’ in all of its services. Instagram is examining a dark mode in beta, and we already know that both Facebook and its popular messaging service WhatsApp is working on a dark theme of its own.
Well, thanks to popular WhatsApp tipster WABetaInfo, you can see your first look at dark mode for WhatsApp. It’s a moment to celebrate, but some of you may not be happy with this dark theme.
You can view in the screenshots before, WhatsApp isn’t expecting a right AMOLED dark theme as we have already seen with Facebook Messenger and Instagram. Instead, similar to Twitter, it uses a “blue night” theme. In its blog post, WABetaInfo features that in the Settings WhatsApp will add a new “Theme” section, where you will see three options dark, light, or system default.

Dark mode for WhatsApp on iOS
iOS users have two ways to perform dark mode; however, one of the ways requires you to jailbreak the device; hence, we’ll include a more straightforward method than this. iOS 11 had launched a “Smart Invert” feature that reverses the colors of the iPhone’s display. Like in Android, the chats page does not change, and hence here too, you’ll require to apply a dark image as Wallpaper.
