  1. As far as I know, WhatsApp doesn’t have this feature. Yeah, you can enable settings for black wallpaper so that we can give some rest to the eyes. But why black wallpaper? We can apply any dark wallpaper from library.

    1. Hey man, now whatsapp have officially added dark mode and since it’s not looking cool, personally, I don’t like it at all.

      the second option to make it dard is, keep dark mode on your Android or iOS operating system. They’ll make it dark automatically.
