WhatsApp is working on the much-awaited dark mode feature for its Android app

According to a tweet posted by WABetaInfo, a user has also developed a “concept theme” for the same purpose.

There are many plus points of using a dark theme in apps. The feature will help lessen the strain on one’s eyes while using WhatsApp in the dark or low-light conditions. The new mode may also help save battery life while messaging on the app.
