Facebook has added dark mode to messenger app but left WhatsApp users disappointed by not adding the same feature to the instant messaging app.
WhatsApp's 1.5 billion users are anxiously waiting for the feature to be added to the instant messaging application, Metro UK reports.
Briefly.co.za gathers that the dark mode feature changes the app’s colour scheme, toning down the brightness and replacing the white background with black.
According to the report, WhatsApp is carrying out final testing of the feature, which will be rolled out to iOS and Android users soon.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that WhatsApp said that its instant messaging app would stop working on all phones running Microsoft Windows OS from Tuesday, December 31.
It should be noted that Facebook, the owner of WhatsApp, stopped people from creating new accounts on Windows phones earlier in 2019.
The reason for doing so, according to the company, was because it has stopped developing updates for the platform, and as such there would not be new updates or features for the OS.

The app company was also reported to have said that it was stopping support for devices whose operating systems do not have the capabilities that are needed to expand the app’s features.
