What is WhatsApp Dark Mode? How to Enable WhatsApp Dark Mode
Hey Unlockers, Hope you’re doing absolutely fine. This post is about the Whatsapp Dark Mode.WhatsApp ‘Dark Mode’ is a feature that has been in the news for almost a year. While there is no date when the dark mode will be rolled out.
Almost every major application like Gmail, Google Chrome and even Facebook’s Messenger has a dark mode now, we can no longer wait for WhatsApp to switch from default green colour to dark.
What are the uses of Dark Mode
- It is particularly useful if you use your smartphone at night so that the light of your smartphone does not affect your eyes.
- However, if you can’t wait for the official roll-out of the dark mode then this will work for you. If you are an Android user, you need to be running the Android Q beta on your device. On the other hand, iOS users need to be on iOS 11 to enjoy the dark mode. So let’s talk about how you can enable the dark mode
Dark mode for WhartsApp on Android
Android users need to be running the latest beta version of Android Q or Android 10. Android Q comes with a native dark mode. Enable the dark theme on Android Q by going into the settings-Display and then tap theme and select “Dark”.
Now, to apply the “Dark” theme to all the apps for that you’ll need to enable the Developer Options. Head towards “About Phone” tab in Settings and then tap on “Build Number” seven times. Go back to the main Settings page and you will get the “Developer options.” Once in the Developer options, switch on the “Override force-dark” to apply the dark theme to all the apps.
WhatsApp will now have dark mode throughout its UI except the chats page. For that, You can easily darken chats area by to the Settings- Chats- Wallpaper. Now pick a solid dark color from the list.
However, Android Q is currently in beta and isn’t available for all. If your phone supports the Android 10 beta then you are required to opt-in for the update.
Dark mode for WhatsApp on iOS
iOS 11 had introduced a “Smart Invert” feature that reverses the colors of iPhone’s display. The same problem we face in Android is the same in iOS, the chats page does not change and here to you’ll need to apply a dark image as wallpaper.
