WhatsApp Messenger beta for Android Community Report 📲 Google Pixel XL 2, Android 8.1.0

The dark mode is not there yet but this one of the first elements of it which you can try by yourself right now. If you will turn dark mode on your device, WhatsApp will automatically change the background wallpaper of your chat to dark. This feature is available in WhatsApp beta v2.19.327

This time WhatsApp team took an interesting approach to release just a part of the feature and not full dark mode support as it was with Instagram for example. Does it mean that Instagram has a better codebase that is easier to change?

Anyway, to try it out you just need to turn a system-wide dark mode and check the app. It is not yet clear if it is not a server-side switch but it looks like it should be available to everyone who has a beta version.
