WhatsApp has just deployed dark mode on its Desktop version. We explain how to activate this new display mode.
Dark mode is one of the latest trends in high-tech. This display mode seems to have conquered both manufacturers and application developers. In the case of WhatsApp, if it is already possible to take advantage of dark mode on smartphones, the deployment of the latter on the Desktop version of the application was eagerly awaited.
But now we can rejoice. Indeed, WhatsApp has just integrated the functionality on Windows 10. It should be noted that this deployment takes place a few days after the web version has received its dark mode.
Find out now how to activate this feature on WhatsApp Desktop.
How to activate dark mode on WhatsApp Desktop?
Before getting to the heart of the matter, it's good to point out that Dark Mode is only available in version 2.2027.10.0 (or later) of WhatsApp Desktop. In case your Windows 10 PC does not yet have this version of the application, go to the Microsoft store to download it.
Once the software is ready, open it then go to settings via the main menu. Choose "themes" and select "dark". As Thewincentral.com notes , Dark Mode on WhatsApp Desktop is more like a trial version than a stable version since some features are not yet available. In particular, it seems that voice and video calls are not yet supported.
