WhatsApp beta for Android 2.19.292: what’s new?

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

WhatsApp has recently submitted a new update through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version up to 2.19.292.
This update brings something new about the Dark Theme: discover all details below!


  • The Dark Theme feature is not available yet.
  • WhatsApp is working very hard on the feature in the recent few updates, in order to ensure the best bug-free experience for you, before the release for everyone.
  • There is no issue if you have updated your WhatsApp beta version and it’s not visible for you, seen that it’s under development.
  • We have no details about when the feature will be released for everyone. So, for this reason, we invite you to be patient.

Some users are experiencing issues using this beta, in particular when opening some chats, WhatsApp crashes.
Please don’t update to this beta. If you have already updated, please wait the next update (probably 2.19.293).


In the 2.19.282 beta update we learnt that WhatsApp was working again on the Dark Mode (called by the app Dark Theme). We have also discovered that the Dark Theme uses night blue colors, and that there will be a System default option to automatically set the theme.
In the 2.19.292 update, the Dark Theme is still not available, but finally we see progress: in this beta they are working on bubbles in the chat!

We don’t know yet when WhatsApp is going to release the feature. When ready, we will post an announcement!
