Finally Dark Mode Arrives To Soothe Your Midnight WhatsApp’s Chat
Facebook owned app (WhatsApp) eventually giving her users eyes a break from the brightness and rolling out by the popular dark mode settings so the messaging app can experience what other apps like Twitter and facebook. It’s been years after many other tech giants figured out how to offer a “dimmer pixels” switch and it has ever since then become many people’s favourite.
It was gathered from Whatsapp that the feature is rolling out globally in the “coming days” to the latest version of Whatsapp for both Android users and iOS.
I’m sure you are asking how will you be able to enable the night/dark mode. It will be added to the settings features so it can be enabled via system settings for all users running the most recent versions, regardless of your OSes.
However Users on Android 10 and iOS 13 will be able to use dark mode by enabling it in system settings. Users on Android 9 and below can go into WhatsApp
Step 1 go to (Settings)
Step 2 go to. (chats )
Step 3 go to. (Theme)
Step 4 go to select( ‘Dark’.)
A bad one for iPhone users not running the latest OS as they are out of luck. “Dark Mode will only be available to users on iOS 13 and above,” spokesman.
According to WhatsApp the eye-soothing and option has been the most requested feature from users everywhere.
Nonetheless, it’s high time to join this sweet experience and make end users enjoy it too.
If you can remember YouTube, for example, released a dark mode for its iOS app two years ago . Twitter moved from night mode to dark mode which was a darker version of the night mode about a year ago. Google was not also left out showing casing off a system-wide dark mode for Android Q in May 2019. A month after that Apple joined up the bandwagonby previewing iOS 13’s eye-soothing settings.
However it took Facebook so long but hey better late than never. May be Facebok have little or no interest in this moving fast and high demanding soothing-eye thing.
Just before the launch, WhatsApp wrote that it spent its time “researching and experimenting” how to design and have a dark mode that would ensure “readability” and maintain “information hierarchy.”
This I believe is a way of saying it didn’t want to reduce eye-strain so much that users might actually remember they need to go to bed, rather they wanted people to spend more hours reading and texting via the app throughout the night.
“When choosing colours, we wanted to minimise eye fatigue and use colours that are closer to the system defaults on iPhone and Android respectively,” it writes, before reversing the intent by expressing the counter design: “We wanted to help users easily focus their attention on each screen. We did this by using colour and other design elements to make sure the most important information stands out.”
Perhaps it’s clear why it took the company so long to “fix” eye strain after all.
