The latest beta of WhatsApp is equipped with a dark mode, report our colleagues from Android Police on January 22. An option in the application settings allows indeed to darken the colors of the interface and enjoy a dark gray background.

So it?s not a dark mode to reduce the power consumption of OLED screens. However, the mode is a boon for your eyes, especially if you are looking at your smartphone in the dark. As a reminder, the dark mode has already appeared many times in the beta of WhatsApp. Its last appearance dates from October 2019.

How to activate WhatsApp dark mode

For the moment, the dark mode is therefore reserved for participants of the beta program set up by WhatsApp via the Play Store. Unfortunately, this program has recently been closed. Facebook, parent company of WhatsApp, claims to have recruited enough beta testers. It is unknown when the option will be deployed in the final version of WhatsApp on Android.
