- The dark mode is an alternative to the already available light mode. It displays light-coloured text on a dark background. The dominant colours that is mainly seen in dark mode are fluorescent colours. This particular mode is recommended for extensive mobile users as it reduces light emission from the devices, at the same time managing the colour contrast ratios needed for readability.
- The dark mode feature also helps in saving the battery of your phone as the displays do not emit as many lights as it does while using a normal bright mode. The feature adjusts as per the light conditions.
- Although Whatsapp has not officially unveiled the feature, it can be accessed on some Andriod devices. The Dark mode feature works on the beta version of the app on Andriod 10. However, some reports suggest that the feature involves bug and hence most of the users will not be able to use it.
- Whatsapp will come up with a different layout on the dark mode. The text will be highlighted in yellow whereas while chatting with a business account the text colour will change to fluorescent green. The messaging app will also have different wallpapers for the dark and normal mode. While using the dark mode, the background colour will be darkened.
However, if you want to be the first one to try out the dark mode as soon as it is launched officially, you are required to enrol for the beta program. If you are using an Android device, you can download the beta app through Google play store. There is however no provision to get the beta program in IOS as it is currently full.
