Since last year, WhatsApp made headlines in almost all news portals for introducing its dark mode feature to iOS & Android apps. The dark mode feature was touted as the most sought after feature for the messaging app & so the app rolled out the feature earlier this year for mobile devices in beta versions of Android & iOS.
Since the much talked about feature became an instant hit, Facebook-owned WhatsApp is now all ready to roll out the same functionality for WhatsApp web users as well & the WhatsApp desktop application. The messaging platform is presently working towards providing the dark mode feature to its desktop application &WhatsApp web as per the latest reports by the WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo.
The dark mode theme which is currently available for iOS & Android phone users in beta versions will soon be made available in stable versions. The desktop application & WhatsApp web are also getting a makeover & screenshots of the same were posted by WABetaInfo showing the new dark interface.
The feature uses a dark grey hue for saving users from bright light interfaces in the middle of the night, although it doesn’t feature an OLED-friendly theme, the interface is dark enough to offer a dark theme feature to users.
Twitter, on the other hand, offers both the options of a dark grey theme in its web interface as well as a pitch-black OLED-friendly theme to its users.
However, the work is still ongoing to properly put the new feature in place for web users & desktop application& clearly needs much time for implementing it. WhatsApp tracker had posted another screenshot which showed different emojis but, had a white background. This means, that the feature will definitely take a good amount of time for getting introduced for the web users & desktop application.
The dark mode feature had taken an ample amount of time to get implemented even for the Android & iOS apps hence; it could be expected that the dark theme feature for desktop application & WhatsApp web will also take a considerable amount of time for its successful implementation.
