Everyone loves to work with dark mode on pc. This is same with Whatsapp. There are so many third party unofficial whatsapp apps are available with this same dark mode feature. But as we all know these third party apps can be a big security issue for us. So everyone don’t want to play with their privacy.

We found big changes after rolling android 10 Q version. After this android Q version many stock and third party android apps are moving on dark side with dedicated Dark Mode. Whatsapp developers also found great interest about the dark mode, so now they are ready with whatsapp dark mode beta version.

Nowadays whatsapp is the most popular messages sharing app in all over the world. So their developer needs to work to make it more interesting.

Just because whatsapp has rolling out dark mode to its user with latest whatsapp beta build, so we can expect its stable version in coming days. But this time whatsapp application dark mode is only for whatsapp beta testers.

Before going to turn On Dark mode on whatsapp, it’s must to know that whatsapp dark mode is not pure black. By turning ON dark mode on whatsapp switches the app’s background to dark gray.
