WhatsApp to Get Dark Mode and Swipe to Reply

WhatsApp, that started out as a simple messaging app, has got a number of features over the years such as group video calling, group messaging features, and more.

The app is set to receive yet another new feature soon, that people have been asking for a long time. WhatsApp will finally get a “dark mode” setting, which turns its entire theme black and grey. The feature makes it easier to use during night time.

This feature is also great for OLED display Smartphones because a black color theme on such displays improves battery life.

Another new feature that is expected to arrive soon on WhatsApp is a ‘Swipe to Reply’ function. This feature is already present in WhatsApp’s iOS version, but it never debuted for the Android app.
