WhatsApp Web dark mode is now officially supported and there is a super simple way to enable it. If you use WhatsApp Web that probably means you’re using the service on a laptop or a desktop, or perhaps an iPad. On all of these devices WhatsApp Web dark mode could give some much needed relief to your eyes. We’d previously shared a simple way to enable dark mode on WhatsApp Web via the Inspect Element feature on most desktop browsers. Now that WhatsApp Web dark mode is officially supported, you no longer need to do that. If you want a dark theme on WhatsApp Web, keep reading this simple guide.
WhatsApp Web Dark Mode: How to Enable
WhatsApp Web doesn’t officially support dark mode, but there are two ways to enable it easily. You can either enable it by using the Inspect Element option on your browser or by installing an extension. Here’s what you need to do.
- Go to WhatsApp Web on your computer and log in via the QR code. To do this, open WhatsApp on your Android phone > tap the three-dots icon on the top-right > Settings > WhatsApp Web. On iPhone, open WhatsApp > Settings > WhatsApp Web. Now scan the code on your computer’s screen and log in.
Click the three-dots icon on at the top of the list of recent chats > Settings > Theme.
Now select Dark and click Ok.
That’s it, now open WhatsApp Web and enjoy dark mode.
