WhatsApp’s Next Big Features: Dark Mode, Netflix Trailer Stream Support

WhatsApp may offer a better Dark Mode experience to iPhone users. Also, you can soon watch Netflix trailer within the application.
WhatsApp fans have long sought after a Dark Mode. The recent beta updates have revealed the feature may finally come to the application. The dark mode, however, isn’t going to be the only big feature that is expected to come soon on WhatsApp. The company is also working on a new feature that will allow users to play Netflix trailers within the app.

WhatsApp Dark Mode

While we already know how WhatsApp’s Dark Mode will look like on Android smartphones, WABetainfo reports WhatsApp will offer three types of Dark Mode settings to iPhone users.

With the first configuration, WhatsApp adopts a darker color, in line with the dark mode on native iOS apps with the iOS 13 update. The second configuration makes the WhatsApp on iOS lighter intensity of dark color including table and cell background.

Right now, these two settings have been spotted in the early version of WhatsApp. The third configuration is likely to be available soon.

Separately, WhatsApp for Android beta has received a small update to Dark Mode — the lock icon in the Dark Bubble has been tweaked with better design.


Netflix streaming support

WhatsApp may soon allow users to watch Netflix trailers within the application. According to Wabetainfo, WhatsApp will show you a large video thumbnail with a Play icon – similar to video links from YouTube. If you tap on the play button, you can watch the Netflix trailer within the app. The functionality appears to be quite similar to how the picture-in-picture mode works on WhatsApp.
