A few days ago, we talked about how the Facebook application development team began to introduce a dark theme into the application. Similar measures are now being taken with the WhatsApp Android app.
TheNextWeb informs that so far this is true exclusively for Android, but not for iOS. In addition, to activate a dark theme, you will have to use the latest beta version of WhatsApp. The opportunity has not yet reached the release build.
Where to download WhatsApp beta?
You can’t join the beta program of the app on the Google Play Store. If you try to receive a message that the maximum number of testers has already been collected, and new ones are not required.
