Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

WhatsApp has recently submitted a new update through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version up to 2.19.298.
WhatsApp continues to work on the upcoming 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.

We have recently published all the details available about the development of the Dark Theme, precisely:

  • 2.19.292, about Dark Bubbles.
  • 2.19.294, about the dark layout for Stickers and Emoji Background Selector.
  • Today WhatsApp has released the 2.19.298 update. In this update, the Dark Theme is not available yet, unfortunately, but the update brings other hidden tracks about new improvements: in this beta, WhatsApp has improved the layout of the Date and Event Bubbles, making them dark!

    This is one of the small changes implemented for the Dark Theme. Unfortunately we don’t know any release date, but we are ready to announce any new improvements when implemented.
