[APK] WhatsApp Beta Update Finally Brings Dark Mode

If you use WhatsApp, you might be waiting for their most awaited feature. The long wait for a dedicated WhatsApp Dark Mode is now over, with the latest app beta now finally adding the native darkened theme to the messaging app.

We saw our first hints of Dark Mode back in 2018 and it took world’s second most popular non-Google Android app such a long time to implement this AMOLED-friendly mode is welcome but slightly disappointing. If you are enrolled in the WhatsApp beta, users are seeing the new theme after updating to version 2.20.13. You can also sideload the APK if you haven't enrolled.

As far as dark modes go, the WhatsApp implementation isn’t the best out there though. It is simply a deeper grayscale color to make WhatsApp easier to use at night or in low-light environments. How you feel about it will definitely depend on just what you consider a “true” dark theme.

However, WhatsApp's new dark mode does honor your device system settings if you wish. There is a toggle within the app settings that you can enable to auto-switch when you have your system dark mode enabled — or you can simply leave it activated all the time.

We’re not entirely sure when the new dark mode for WhatsApp will rollout for stable builds of the messaging app. Although it’s great that an app with over 5 billion installs now finally has — what many would consider an essential — darker OLED-friendly theme.
