How is it going everybody and welcome back to another article? So I have a quick little post today but I’m sure you’re gonna love it. So how about opening WhatsApp and seeing that now it is compatible with dark mode. that’s right, WhatsApp has updated and now is 100% compatible with dark mode and then it just looks like Instagram, it looks amazing, clean, and awesome.
So, of course, we are not just writing this post to show off, I’m trying to teach you. Also how you can do, how you can get WhatsApp in dark mode on your Android Phone. Ok, it’s very very easy.
First thing if you have an iPhone then you must have iOS 13 to use WhatsApp in dark mode. so if your iPhone is not updated to iOS 13 then your iPhone is not compatible with it and you won’t be able to get WhatsApp in dark mode. And for the android device users, you just need to update your android version to android 10. So update your android version to the latest android 10 to enable WhatsApp dark mode. If you have not updated your android version yet, then consider updating it to android 10 if available, cause it has many more cool features and security patches as well.
Another thing you need to check before going further is that make sure you have already updated your WhatsApp to the latest version. Right now, Whatsapp has 2.20.89 as the latest version, so make sure you have the same one installed. So to check this go to > play store or app store depending on the OS you are using. Then search for the WhatsApp, there you will get two options if you have the latest version installed then you will get “ open and uninstall” options. If your WhatsApp is outdated then you will get open and update options. So if you have the latest version then it is good if you don’t have the latest versions then consider updating your WhatsApp.
Now let’s start with the actual process.
Enable WhatsApp dark mode on Android Devices:
Honestly speaking, enabling dark mode in WhatsApp is a very very easy process anybody can easily do this. So let’s do this together.
- First, open you’re WhatsApp.
- Then tap on the More Options > then on Settings > then on Chats > finally on Theme.
- After that select from the following options:
Dark: Turn dark mode on
And this will enable WhatsApp dark mode on your android device.
Enable WhatsApp dark mode on iPhones:
On iPhones, this process is almost the same. if you are set the dark mode for the system already then you don’t need to set WhatsApp dark mode separately. Cause on iOS WhatsApp can inherit the system theme, so WhatsApp is always gonna be in dark mode.
Not a dark mode lover then you can individually enable dark mode for WhatsApp. To do so follow the above steps as it is and you will be good to go.
I am personally a big fan of dark mode. I think I was one of the few who enabled dark mode for the system as well as for WhatsApp, as soon as the update rolled out with this feature. It’s been a few weeks now I am using it and it feels awesome. Far better than the light mode, it has good visibility in sunlight. I don’t know if it is good for power saving or not but it definitely feels good. After all, It was a much-awaited feature of Android and WhatsApp.
So basically it is all about appearance, not performance, so if you don’t mind how your mobile device looks then this feature is not going to help you anyway. But if you are particular about the appearance of your mobile device then, you will definitely like this dark mode.
So that’s all for today’s article. Now you can also enable dark mode for WhatsApp on your android as well as ios devices.
So let us know you like that dark mode or not in the comment section belove and don’t forget to share this guide with your family and friends.
See you in the next one.
