Meanwhile, Night Mode has been spotted in WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.19.139. However, the feature is under development as of now and not available for anyone. The report adds that WhatsApp wants to make sure that the feature is bug-free before it is released for its users.
Screenshots of WhatsApp’s Night mode were also put out by the website that reveals the feature has been enabled for chats list, as well as Status and Calls sections. The action buttons are in green colour in the Night mode, though it is possible that the buttons could be changed to white colour in the final version.
