WHATSAPP could be preparing update that includes a dark mode

When it comes to mobile applications, there are those who prefer them in light shades while others like dark-looking. And it seems that WHATSAPP would be close to joining this duality of looks.

The famous mobile messaging app is working on launching an update that would bring the function of “dark mode”, highly anticipated by users, and reported the specialized portal WABetaInfo.

When activated, this new function would change all the light colors of the application to a tonality between gray and black, as already applied by Twitter and Youtube, among others, on their digital platforms for some time.

The new feature will have several advantages. First, it will help to reduce the tension in the user’s eyes during the use of WhatsApp at night or in low light conditions, because the brightness of the screen will not be so luminous. In addition, the ‘ dark mode ‘ will help keep the battery in phones with OLED screens.
