Dark Mode

The Dark mode is one of the most awaited features on WhatsApp, it has been in the making for almost a month now. According to reports, the feature is perfect on Android devices while the version iOS needs some working.

Users will be able to automatically set the colour theme to be changed as per the system theme. While the iOS version of Dark Theme will have a darker colour scheme, Android users will get a lighter version.

Netflix Streaming

According to reports, WhatsApp will soon allow users to view Netflix trailers on its app. Similar to YouTube, WhatsApp will show you a large video icon with a Play button on the app.

Finger Lock

The finger lock feature will allow users to have a privacy screen before the app opens up. Android users can now use the fingerprint sensor to lock and unlock their WhatsApp. The feature is supported by Face ID lock on iOS devices.
