WhatsApp finally brought the dark mode for its Android beta users and they are rolling out slowly. The latest version of WhatsApp (v2.20.13) can be downloaded from APKMirror and if you are already registered for the Beta version on the Google Play Store, they can directly update it from the store. A new “theme” option can be found under the “chat” section of the “settings” page, from where you can enable the feature.
As of now, the feature is only available for beta testers and there is no word when it will be available for stable WhatsApp users. WABetaInfo is saying that if you have already updated to the most recent version available and you don’t see the feature, please back up your chat history and reinstall WhatsApp because every time you reinstall WhatsApp, the most updated configurations from the server are downloaded, enabling the feature for you.
