Earlier, Google Duo had also joined the race to be the part of dark mode rage. “Low light mode helps people connect with each other face to face, even when the lighting conditions aren’t optimal. The video call will adjust so people in the frame are more visible when the phone detects dim lighting,” Niklas Blum, Senior Product Manager, Google Duo, said in a blog post.
With the dark mode, there are few more innovative features coming to WhatsApp for Android and iOS. You can let us know your views about the dark mode interface in the comments section below.
