WHATSAPP DARK THEME Made Simple – Even Your Kids Can Do It


Okay, firstly pay less attention to the sentence “even your kids can do it”. We both know that’ll never happen.

If you ask me I’d say only 5% of parents in the world allow their children to have access to WhatsApp.

Forgive my manners, I’m Beejay Adoghe and in a bit, I am going to show you how to activate WhatsApp dark theme on your Phone.

The process is completely far from rocket science, it is very easy to get the hang of.

How To Enable WhatsApp Dark Theme

Here’s a detailed guide to enable WhatsApp Dark Theme.

1. Open WhatsApp

2. Click on the 3 dotted icon located at the top fight right.

3. Tap on settings.

4. Tap on chats.

5. Tap on theme and choose dark as your preferred theme.

And there you have it. Simple right? You can always follow the same steps to change from dark to light theme.

We hope that sometime in the future the developers of WhatsApp get to install new and more amazing themes for us.

Note: If for some funny reason you don’t see the theme option on your Android device all you need to do is update your WhatsApp from Google Play Store. After doing this you should see the theme option.
