WhatsApp was today updated to version 2.20.30, introducing a new Dark Mode option that has been in testing for a few weeks now. According to the WhatsApp release notes, the new Dark Mode option is available whenever Dark Mode is activated on the iPhone or iPad.

Dark Mode is linked to iOS 13, which means iOS 13 is required to use Dark Mode. WhatsApp users on earlier versions of iOS will not have access to the feature.

Dark Mode is available throughout the WhatsApp app, with dark chat bubbles and a dark version of wallpaper, a dark settings section, and a dark splash screen.

Today's update also includes a new search option that allows users to filter by author and content type, making it easier to locate photos and other content.

Finally! But there is no iPad app.

Will the macOS app get it as well?

Finally! Looks great. I got the updated Facebook Messenger today as well, at last with a dark mode that follows the system setting.


… now, where are you, Gmail dark mode???

Seriously one of the reasons I don’t use dark mode at all

I hate when most of my apps are dark and then I jump into one and it’s light — it’s so ugly and inconsistent looking that I avoid dark mode in part for that reason

I'm a rolling stone.
Wallpaper in chats is not solid black, there's also no solid black wallpaper in WA settings.

Edit: Downloaded a solid black wallpaper for Ip Xs, set it, done...
