How to Enable Whatsapp Web Dark Mode ?

Whatsapp has launched Darkmode in March to mobiles after many months of beta testing and announcements. Dark mode enables the users to switch their WhatsApp theme to dark, it is specifically intended to use in night times. Initially, the dark mode was launched in beta version and then was launched to iOS and Android devices separately.

Android OS has incorporated the dark theme for better usage during night times and also from the perspective of saving power. iOS also has incorporated dark themes in their devices for the same purpose. The same has been adapted by Whatsapp to support the dark theme and it did undergo many testings and reviews. Finally, after many months, Whatsapp dark theme seems to have found a way to the Web version and many were expecting to have dark themes on the web version too.
