Whatsapp is currently working on ‘Dark Mode’ and ‘Swipe to reply’ features for both Android and iOS. Users on both Android and iOS will soon enjoy the new Dark Mode feature. The Swipe to reply feature which is currently available on only iOS will also be made available to Android users.
Android users like myself will have the ability to swipe a message they want to reply to with the Swipe to reply feature. Whatsapp will then load the message automatically in the reply space.
With the similar feature currently on Android, users have to tap and hold a message before the reply space comes for them to type their message. Having a Swipe to reply feature like that on iOS will make things easier, faster and more fun.
The Dark Mode feature is something we all are waiting for. Apps like Telegram implemented the Dark mode long ago and I believe its now the turn of Whatsapp to do same. Facebook is yet to also release a dark mode for Messenger after making the announcement some time back.
I hope the dark mode doesn’t turn out to be just a rumor and Whatsapp will implement it together with other great features.
