Among the functions that are meant to appear in future WhatsApp updates, there is a possibility that the messenger will get a dark shower. The speculation came from an anonymous source who spoke with WABetaInfo.
According to the site, some source code references have been found for WhatsApp test versions, some of which mention the "dark mode", which can leave the entire application interface with darker tones for more comfortable looking in low light.

There are many important secret references in recent updates!

"WhatsApp finally develops dark mode! It is a dream, there are many secret references important in recent updates!", WABetaInfo says.
Despite the announcement, it has not yet been described in detail how the dark mode will change the WhatsApp interface and has not released screenshots showing the new look of the app.
On the other hand, an interesting detail was noted: the dark mode could result in lower battery consumption in OLED devices because the display technology is capable of controlling the LEDs individually, and all unused devices to turn off. The functionality can therefore be a good request, but only if the "dark mode" actually represents a black interface instead of the usual gray tones.
If rumors are confirmed, WhatsApp will participate in Twitter, Pocket, Discord and Reddit apps, which already offer the possibility to switch to both the dark mode on Android and iOS.
Another possible function that may be on the way to the messaging application, as recently explained by WABetaInfo, is the "slip to respond" functionality, which should replace the current way of responding to specific messages from the keep command. finger for a few seconds.
