WhatsApp Dark Mode: Details Leaked By WABetaInfo
The WABetaInfo has reported that the dark mode of WhatsApp has been spotted on the Android beta version 2.19.282. The account also informs us about the different themes that WhatsApp is trying to working on currently, and will probably be introducing them soon too!
Apparently, the popular social networking app is working on other modes of WhatsApp too, such as the Dark Mode, the Light Mode and system default mode.
Here’s How The Dark Mode Will Work
In the ‘Settings’ tab of WhatsApp, you will find a ‘Theme’ option, under which will be listed these options: Light, Dark and System default.
The Light theme will give the background of WhatsApp a white colour, which is what has been the practice up until now. The dark theme will, obviously, make the screen go black. The System default mode would alter the settings of WhatsApp as per the phone’s actual settings.
Why The Hype Of The Dark Mode
if you open your WhatsApp in the dark, you must have noticed the serious pain your eyes go through to look at it. To avoid this, WhatsApp’s Dark mode has come to our rescue.
Science says that if our eyes are exposed to light, it hinders the secretion of melatonin, which is a hormone that helps us sleep.
Also, it will also help reduce the battery usage of our phones, and thus get them to last longer without dying on us.
What Other Features Is WhatsApp Introducing
WhatsApp is planning to introduce an exciting and interesting new feature where messages will self-destruct themselves! Yes, now there will be no ‘This message was deleted’ template that will pop up in place of a message.
