WhatsApp seems to be working on users more options with dark mode, by adding different colour schemes on the Web version. Additionally, WhatsApp Web users might also have the ability to make voice and video calls in the future.
Earlier this year, WhatsApp for iOS and Android both got dark mode but the Web version of the platform is yet to receive the feature. Still, users can try out the dark mode on WhatsApp Web for themselves by enabling it, even though it is not rolled out, yet.
WhatsApp is set to receive dark mode on the web soon. The Facebook-owned social messaging platform brought dark mode to its application on Android as well as iOS. However, the dark mode remains missing from the web interface of the service. While WhatsApp is officially working on bringing dark themes to the web, you can go ahead and enable dark themes right now. While you can wait for the official update, there is now an option to enable dark mode right now.
The first step is to visit WhatsApp Web and then open WhatsApp on your phone and tap menu and select WhatsApp Web. Now, point your phone at the screen and capture the code. This will immediately log you into the web version of the social messaging service. With the web version open, simply right click on the window and then click on the “Inspect” at the bottom. You can alternatively press Ctrl+Shift+I to inspect the webpage.
This will immediately open the code of the page along with a console for editing. At the top, you will find a string ‘body class=web’ that defines the class of the original theme. Now, simply replace the word web with web dark. Once the string is replaced, simply press ENTER. This should immediately turn the interface into a dark theme. However, when you refresh the tab or close the page, the app will automatically switch back to the light theme.
