WhatsApp, the most popular chat app in the world owned by Facebook, has long rumoured to have been working on a dark mode for its app on iOS and Android. The feature is said to be in the works for months and is now expected to launch later this month or early next year. The Dark Mode not only allows users to save their eyes from glare when they are chatting on WhatsApp late in night but will also probably help save them battery on their phones. A dark mode in WhatsApp will make it much more convenient for users to use the application at night time.
According to WABetaInfo the dark mode is still in development and there’s no launch time as of now. In a tweet, WABetaInfo said: “It’s still under development and there is no news now.” WhatsApp has not officially said anything on whether the dark mode is being developed for the users.
WhatsApp has been adding many new features to what is arguably the very popular instant messaging app for smartphones, and is still constantly trying to improve the chat experience for its users. According to reports, Whatsapp now working on the feature of accessing the videos directly from the notifications. With this feature, users will not need to open an app to view the videos on the Whatsapp app and they will be able to play videos directly from the notifications. Currently, notifications only come up on the screen with the name of the person and a short preview of the top of their message.
