This setting, which transforms the look of the app with a darker colour scheme, has been rumoured for a while but there’s still no official confirmation on when it will make an appearance.
Fans seem thrilled by this news update with one posting a reply that reads: “This moment this little moment is called happiness.”
Along with the tweet by WABetainfo. there have also been some new images posted online which show exactly how the Dark Mode will look.
This setting is becoming hugely popular with Facebook Messenger already adopting this new look.
Google has also announced that a Dark Mode will be coming to Android later this year and Apple is expected to reveal something similar at its WWDC Developers Conference next month.
It’s thought the US technology firm may follow its macOS update with a darker colour scheme for its iOS platform.
We’ll have to wait and see exactly when WhatsApp will announce this upgrade but, fingers crossed, there could be some good news coming soon.
