WhatsApp has recently submitted a new update through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version up to 2.19.133.
Let’s find out together what is new ..
- The Dark Mode feature is not available yet.
- WhatsApp is working on the feature in this update in order to ensure the best bug-free experience for you, before the release for everyone.
- For this reason, there is no issue if you have updated your WhatsApp version and it is not working for you seen that this feature is under development.
We have published the first screenshots of the future Dark Mode in the 2.19.82 beta update on Android.
In the 2.19.85 beta update, they worked to implement a dark mode for the status bar.

When we have more details and screenshots, we will immediately publish them.
If you cannot wait, and you have installed Android Q beta, you can consider to enable the native Dark Mode, that forces all apps to appear dark:
