It is true that from time to time there is a news about Whatsapp that tells what the dark mode will be like as soon as they finish developing it, but it is still not available today.
You can rest assured that as soon as dark mode appears in Whatsapp and is available to all users, you’ll find out for sure. You only have to look at DuckDuckGo for the number of posts on the Internet about Whatsapp dark mode to see the expectation raised by this simple feature that has been implemented for many years in other popular applications.
So rest assured, as soon as it’s available, you’ll find out quickly, if the app doesn’t update automatically and you find yourself in the dark mode without asking for it, because yes, the way multinationals like to do things.
