Facebook has finally launched Whatsapp in dark mode for it’s iOS and Android users today. If you haven’t got the feature update your Whatsapp from Playstore or AppStore to get the much awaited feature.
iOS 13 and Android 10 user will automatically get a switch over to Whatsapp Dark mode while user of Android 9 will have to enable Dark mode in Whatsapp settings menu.
The Dark Mode feature of Whatsapp was launched today after months of testing in Beta stage on the respective mobile operating systems.
WhatsApp dark mode ensures that it lowers the brightness of a phone display “During testing we found that combining pure black and white creates high contrast that can lead to eye fatigue,” explains a WhatsApp spokesperson.
“So instead, you’ll notice a special dark gray background and off-white color that lowers the brightness of the screen, cuts down the glare, and improves contrast and readability.” Whatsapp spokesperson said.
The WhatsApp dark theme will be mostly pure black on iOS devices and a darker gray on Android. You can download the latest WhatsApp update from Apple’s App Store or the Google Play Store to get the new dark mode option.
