WhatsApp Dark Mode – The WhatsApp messaging app had been working on the dark mode feature for a very long time, and in that process, WhatsApp has finally announced the long awaiting dark mode feature, which was rolled out on March 2020.
Facebook has designed its WhatsApp dark mode feature to ensure it lowers the brightness of users’ phones. WhatsApp discovered that pure black and white creates high contrast that can lead to eye fatigue; that is why WhatsApp came up with a dark theme feature.
You can choose to stick with the WhatsApp traditional light grey and green design if you like, but the dark theme had recently become available as an alternative for anyone who wants to give it a try.
The dark theme WhatsApp looks pleasant and easier on the eyes because of its green accents that are present in the WhatsApp interface. The dark mode was designed in such a way that if it’s used in low light, the eyes will not be stressed.
