- Click on Settings, then click on Theme and a new window that will appear letting you choose between Light and Dark.
And voila! Now you won’t have to strain your eyes too much during one of those long messaging sessions.
WhatsApp also announced via Twitter that animated stickers are now available to users. Some users on Twitter have reacted to the new feature by calling out WhatsApp for lagging behind Telegram which had already introduced the animated stickers feature in 2019 while Facebook Messenger allow users to send AR stickers to each other.
According to The Star Online, one user described WhatsApp as the “Internet Explorer of messaging platforms”, referring to how it has been slow to introduce features that are already available on other similar applications.
WhatsApp is catching up it seems as earlier it announced that a number of other features will be coming to users such as QR codes for contacts and a video icon in Group Chats.
