Whatsapp has finally rolled out ‘Dark mode’ feature on the messaging app.

Mark Zuckerberg confirmed this a while ago via his Facebook handle.

He wrote:  “Dark mode on WhatsApp is here. Probably one of the most requested features we’ve ever shipped.”

Whatsapp users can access the feature by going into ‘setting’, tapping on ‘Chats’ and then entering the ‘Display’ option. The user can then choose the ‘Dark Theme’ option.

There are two main functional uses of the dark mode. The first and more obvious application of is that the user will not have to strain their eyes at night as the default background of the application is quite bright. Secondly, the dark mode will help save power for phones that use any kind of OLED screen. Pixels on an OLED screen don’t need to stay on to push out black colour. This also yields higher contrast in comparison to LCD screens.
