    iPhone users who are on the WhatsApp beta programme can download the latest update and experience dark mode. As mentioned by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp beta version 2.20.30.25 from TestFlight comes with the dark theme. After updating WhatsApp to the latest beta version, users can enable dark mode on their iPhones and the same will be applied to WhatsApp as well. iPhone users also need to note that WhatsApp dark mode is available only on iOS 13.

    With the new UI change, WhatsApp users will see chat bubbles in green colour, icons in blue and 'end-to-end encryption' text in yellow. Icons for the settings menu remain the same even on dark mode for WhatsApp. There are dark solid colours as wallpapers for chats as well.

    There's another feature for iPhone users on WhatsApp. Users can increase the contrast on their iPhone which will enable lighter dark colours for some UI elements. WhatsApp also blurs the chat wallpaper when multiple messages are selected to delete or forward.

    In this beta update, WhatsApp has added the advanced search feature as well. Spotted last year, this feature lets users for messages through different file types. Along with dark mode, iPhone users can test this feature too on WhatsApp.
