QUOTE OF THE DAY: I think that technology – computers and smart phones and 24-hour availability – often leaves me, and others i know, feeling blank and depressed at the end of a day. I also believe that hyped expectations for raising children leaves many women and men feeling as if their days are a blur of carpools and play-groups and tutors. – Rebecca Traister
WHATSAPP TO ADDRESS DARK MODE ON ANDROID AND IOS
One of the most used messenger apps WhatsApp may soon be coming up with a dark mode feature. The spokesperson said in India that this night feature would be introduced for both Android and iOS platforms.
WHAT IS DARK MODE IN WHATSAPP?
The dark mode in WhatsApp would bring a dark or black color to its app background. The dark mode is useful when you’re using your smartphone at the night time and there is scarce of brightness in the atmosphere. The dark mode or the night mode helps you use the app without putting much pressure on eyes, which makes it tolerable for you to use the phone for a longer period. Also, it is good for your eyes as you’d no longer be encountering a sharp and pentring light when there is dark all around you.
Apart from Dark mode, developers of WhatsApp are also planning to introduce the ‘Swipe to Reply’ feature for Android as iOS already equipped with it. This way, you just have to swipe the message and you would get the reply window opened and ready for you to type.
WHAT IS THERE TO SAY FOR AUTHORITIES?
Although, there is not timeline provided by the authority for the launch of dark mode on both the platforms. However, it is expected to be launched early. In a tweet, WABetaInfo revealed “I’m happy to exclusively give the good news: WhatsApp is finally working on a Dark Mode! It’s a dream. There are many important secret references in recent updates! Be patient to see it out, hoping it will be FULL OLED friendly for Android phones, iPhone X and newer!”
