Using WhatsApp at night will provide our eyes some relief if the Facebook-owned messaging platform implements its ‘Dark mode’.

The rumours for such a mode have been doing rounds for a long time but the news has now been confirmed by WABetaInfo that the feature is under development and will be available for all WhatsApp users. The feature is expected to launch later this month or early next year.

Dark Mode, as the name suggests, reverses the white background to black which is more comforting to eyes. The mode also helps increase battery life.

Android phones with OLED display panels will be at an advantage, as they will feature Dark mode in sharper blacks than other screens.

Earlier this year, WhatsApp rolled out group video calling, and recently also introduced continuous voice message playback. Apart from sending text messages to both individuals and groups, WhatsApp also allows voice calls, video calls and more.
