Many applications and social media platforms are steadily adapting Dark Mode for their user interface primarily because of user convenience. After the likes of YouTube, Gmail and Twitter, it’s time for messaging platform WhatsApp to welcome this feature.

According to WABetaInfo, the beta version of the app has been seen testing the Dark Mode and it is possible WhatsApp will receive Dark Mode in the days to come.

The feature was first spotted by the testers at WABetaInfo in the Android beta version 2.19.82 which apparently comes with the dark mode.

Application of Dark Mode provides lesser strain to eyes and also contributes to power efficiency in devices and since WhatsApp is one of the most extensively used applications in the world, this addition will surely help with saving some battery juice.

WhatsApp Dark Mode is currently available only in the Beta version of the app.

Although the spy shots of the features were taken in the Beta version on iOS, it is confirmed that work for the Android version has begun. The report also states that currently the dark mode has only been implemented on the Settings page of the app.

Additionally, the report also mentions that the dark mode "won't be OLED friendly but it's based on a very dark grey colour."

No news on when the feature will be rolled out in the final version of the app although WABetainfo says it will take some time as the feature still needs a lot of development.
