Here’s how to change the WhatsApp theme on an Android device:

  1. Open the WhatsApp Messenger app.
  2. Tap three vertical dots at the top right.
  3. Select Settings > Chats.
  4. Tap “Theme” under the Display section, and you can now see these three options:
  • Light – To remove dark mode on WhatsApp.
  • Dark – Enable the dark theme.
  • System default – This applies Android’s dark mode state to WhatsApp. For instance, WhatsApp will also be in dark theme if your Android device is in dark mode.

WhatsApp is on a dark theme if iPhone is in dark mode. Otherwise, WhatsApp will also not be in the dark.
