The Facebook-owned messaging app, WhatsApp, has started rolling out the dark mode feature for its users.

Just last week, this dark mode feature was spotted on the Android Beta version of the app by WABetaInfo, a blog that tracks WhatsApp developments. Now recently, the blog noted that iOS may also get this update soon. The blog states that the latest iPhone update of the app can be spotted on iOS test version 2.20.20.17. The update shows traces of Dark mode coming for iPhone users.

The hints that were spotted by the blog include a dark splash screen in the iOS Beta update and it is already enabled by default. This could mean that WhatsApp Dark Mode for iPhone is getting closer to its official release on the App Store, much like how it will release for Android smartphone users.

Here is a list of some of the iOS 13 features for WhatsApp that are expected to be available-

  • The WhatsApp dark Splash Screen can be noticed in the test version of iOS. The Splash screen will let users see the WhatsApp logo whenever they open the app on their iPhones. Earlier, it used to only splash in white.
  • The blog notes that WhatsApp has also tweaked the forward button symbol in the latest iOS Beta version. Additionally, the group and profile icons were updated too, supporting dark colours. Moreover, the app’s top bar icons have also got updates.
  • The latest updates can be buggy as they are still in test mode.
  • The forward button also gets a makeover. WhatsApp has updated the Forward icon design. In addition, the Group and Profile icons are also updated as they now support dark colours.
  • The WhatsApp tab bar and chat bar icons have also received an update with the coming of the iOS 2.20.20.17 software update.

WhatsApp has not officially rolled out the dark mode theme for iOS phones. The only dark theme that is currently available is for the Android Beta version. Users just need to download the latest Android Beta version of the app from its APK version.
