WhatsApp to Get Night Mode Button for Enhancing Photos Captured in Low-Light



WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging app, has got a lot of new features in the past one year. Facebook even added the Snapchat Stories like feature called Status to WhatsApp. The company also introduced video calling and end-to-end encryption along with sharing of all the file formats. According to the latest numbers, WhatsApp has more than 1.2 billion users while Facebook just crosses a whopping 2 billion mark. Talking about the upcoming WhatsApp features, the company might soon introduce the pinned chats feature where the user can see the pinned messages on the top of that specific chat.

Now, the translation page of Whatsapp requests the translation for the Night Mode. Unlike the Night Mode in other apps where the UI is turned dark to reduce the strain on the eyes at nights, the Night Mode in WhatsApp is for the Camera. With this new feature, the camera UI gets a new button for enhancing camera functionality while capturing photos in the low light conditions. We know that the quality of the output from the camera of the 3rd party apps is much worse the stock camera app and few apps also miss the basic features like auto focus.

Apart from the switching to the front or rear camera, the app has only two other options – zoom in/out and turn on/off LED flash. As of now, we aren’t sure whether this new Night Mode will also be added to the video calling screen or not. WhatsApp also misses the video filters which are already added to the Facebook and Instagram apps. Since the translation is requested for iPhone, we might first see this new feature on WhatsApp for iPhone instead of the Android version. The voice calling was first added to the iOS app, whereas the video calling is debuted first on the Android beta app.

Though we don’t have any other details, the new Night Mode can be introduced with the coming beta updates. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more information about this new features in WhatsApp.

Update: The Night Mode option is available for the iOS users using the WhatsApp with the version 2.17.10 or latest. It can be found beside the flash icon on the top right corner in the camera UI. As of now, this feature is only limited to iOS user and we expect it to be soon available for the Android users.
