WhatsApp Beta for Windows 10 and 11 gets much-awaited dark mode support
In November last year, the WhatsApp Beta app made its way to Microsoft Store, letting Windows 11 and Windows 10 users try the app during development. Ever since it appeared on the Microsoft Store, the Meta-owned instant chat messenger has gone through significant changes to provide a more polished experience for Windows 10 and Windows 11 users. The latest update to the WhatsApp Beta app adds support for dark mode, making the app experience even better.
Besides introducing support for dark mode, the update takes the app to Version 2.2205.2.0. Unfortunately, that's pretty much all that you get with the latest update.
On the WhatsApp Beta Settings page, you'll find an option called 'General', clicking on which will open a new page, where you'll get to choose between 'System default', 'Light', and 'Dark.' Our readers are smart enough to understand what each of them means.
For those unaware, the WhatsApp Beta app is based on Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and also takes advantage of Fluent Design elements in Windows 11. And all of this is possible because the WhatsApp development team recently moved to WinUI 2.6 or newer.
If you have WhatsApp Beta installed on your PC and haven't installed the latest update yet, you can go to the Microsoft Store and check for an update.
