The WhatsApp dark mode on Android is here
Will we live to see dark mode enabled default in smartphones and gadgets in the future? That will be a dream come true. Some smartphone users will always get excited about any app or setting getting a dark mode and understandably so. I prefer white text on black/dark backgrounds as it reduces strain on the eyes. However, getting into such a discussion will be subject to debate. The good news is, if you prefer dark modes in apps, then you will be happy that WhatsApp is working on its implementation.
The dark mode setting does not come as a surprise to many as we have heard of rumours in the past. But WAbetainfo just heavily hinted at this with the WhatsApp's latest beta APK. This version is v2.19.82.

However, this is still a setting that needs to be tweaked, as you won't use a toggle in the app as you attempt to go through the settings. There are also rumours that it will not be OLED friendly. However, this shows that in the future, WhatsApp will be implementing it for its end users. We eagerly await the final product.
