The time has come that WhatsApp users have been waiting. The company launched the long-awaited dark theme on Android and iOS, which allows users to switch from a white background to a black one.
The functionality serves not only an aesthetic but also a practical purpose, preventing it from being dazzled by screen light when using WhatsApp during the night. Note that on Android, the background is dark gray while on iOS devices it is black.
The update is expected to be released today for all Android and iOS devices. If you have iOS 13 or Android 10, the dark theme will be automatically activated if you selected it in the system settings, with Android 9 users having to choose the option in the WhatsApp settings.
