Facebook now turns ‘dark’ for WhatsApp. So, now, using WhatsApp at night would get easier on the eyes if Facebook owned messaging platform implements the ‘Dark mode’. To look back, the rumors for such a mode have been afloat for quite some time now. So, finally, the news has been finally confirmed by WABetaInfo that the feature is under-development and might soon arrive to all WhatsApp users.
In a recent tweet, by WABetaInfo, i.e. the site that keeps an eye of WhatsApp’s upcoming features added that, “I receive a lot of questions about the Dark Mode. It’s still under development and there is no news now, be patient please. When there is news on iOS and Android, you will obviously receive more info from me, don’t worry.”

The dark mode has already made its way to Windows 10 PC’s and notebooks. It might as well be available on Apple’s iPhones with iOS 10 and its computers MacOS Mojave.
To know more about the mode, there are several advantage of having a ‘dark mode’ other than it being easier on the eyes and offering striking new look. In addition, this also saves the battery life of the device especially the ones having OLED displays. In fact, Google has confirmed that running dark mode/night mode on its YouTube application at 50 percent screen brightness, consumes 14 percent less battery than when on normal mode. At 100 percent screen brightness, Dark Mode consumes almost 60 percent less battery.
@messenger do you mind having a night mode option? thanks xoxo

Few months back in September too WABetaInfo had tweeted about this WhatsApp’s dark mode. The tweet read that, “There are many important secret references in recent updates! Be patient to see it out, hoping it will be FULL OLED friendly for Android phones, iPhone X and newer!”
Facebook is also all set to introduce a similar dark mode for its own messenger. The news was confirmed on Twitter by Facebook’s Messenger support account. The confirmation message read that, “We are planning to introduce Dark Mode after we’ve finished rolling out the new Messenger to everyone globally.”
