The first question that arises in the mind of users is that, Why is WhatsApp keen to implement dark mode on to its messenger? The answer is clear as all the smartphone users are very much sensitive about the display quality of their phone, and the bright colors are probably damaging the eyes on long term use. Facebook-owned application, WhatsApp, is now on a mission to emit the RGB pixels and darken the background to give it a retro look. It is better than the earlier planned remedy of implementing a blue filter that will reduce the appealing look of the interface. 

During the night hours, WhatsApp’s dark edition will give a pleasant appeal with the black background and the texts in white. Moreover, it also saves a lot of battery power as the pixel density of a dark background consumes less energy but gives the maximum visible output. The border of the WhatsApp messenger interface will be of the signature green color to maintain originality.

Before even WhatsApp released its official dark mode, many smartphone brands such as Vivo and Samsung have already introduced the same in their default skins. These brands give choices to the users to either use dark mode or normal mode for their applications, including WhatsApp.
