    In the past couple of weeks, WhatsApp has been busy rolling out dark mode to its Android and iOS based apps. Though the feature is still available in the beta mode on the two mobile operating systems, however, the wider availability of the feature on smartphones indicates that the company is inching closer to rolling out the feature in the main app. Now, a new report hints towards WhatsApp's dark theme coming to another platform, that is, the web.

    According to a report by WABetaInfo, the blog that tracks developments in WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned social messaging app has started working on implementing dark mode on the web or as the platform is called, WhatsApp Web.

    The blog-site shared screenshots of how various sections, such as the main screen, Settings menu, emoji selector, chat screen, sticker panel, gif panel and chat bubbles, would look like when the dark mode is enabled.

    The feature, as mentioned before, is still in the developmental phase, which is why most users cannot see a toggle switch to enable the dark mode on WhatsApp Web yet. However, with screenshots of the feature showing up it won't be far-fetched to say that the company would roll out the feature to its users around the globe soon.
