Following the addition of Windows 11 design components to its app’s Universal Windows Platform (UWP) beta build, WhatsApp has now made the dark theme support available. Along with support for the dark theme, the new WhatsApp Beta UWP version also includes a number of other small updates. Let’s examine the specifics.
WhatsApp Beta UWP Gains Support for Dark Theme on Windows
The most recent version of the WhatsApp Beta UWP app includes support for dark themes, according to a recent report by reputed WhatsApp features-tracker WABetaInfo (v2.2205.2.0). Dark mode functionality was added to the messaging juggernaut’s Android and iOS apps in 2020, which is owned by Meta. You can now check out a preview of the dark theme below to see how it appears, even if it might take some time for the feature to appear in Windows’ stable version.
So, as you can see, the WhatsApp Beta UWP app automatically sets a dark theme for itself if you set a dark theme on Windows. Additionally, the app’s general settings allow you to manually select a light or a dark theme. However, you must restart the app after manually setting a theme for it in order for the modifications to take effect.
The WhatsApp Beta UWP app received several small UI updates in addition to the dark theme. These include a little increase in chat bubble spacing, a fresh green tint, and performance enhancements over earlier releases.
