WhatsApp may soon get most-anticipated dark mode
This feature is expected to arrive for iOS and Android users both.
Facebook Messenger has already started testing the dark mode for the app in some countries. Samsung has also rolled out One UI based on Android 9 Pie, which comes with a Night Mode too.
A follower sent me this **concept** of WhatsApp for Android with a Dark Mode (OLED compatible). Do you like it? https://t.co/DxGZtdNqZy— WABetaInfo (@WABetaInfo) 1548011496000
WABetaInfo, a fan site that tests new WhatsApp features early, has revealed the concept image of the Dark Mode feature. This feature turns the light-themed background of the app dark. The concept image shows the app with a background completely dark while the chat, contact names and icons are white.
As most smartphones come with OLED these days, the black is deeper, straining your eyes less. This feature is expected to arrive for iOS and Android users both.
Google says that dark mode consumes about 43 per cent lesser power at full brightness than the default white theme. Popular apps like Twitter, YouTube and Google Maps offer dark mode.
