And, although WhatsApp is the one with the highest penetration in the market with more than 1.3 billion users , the truth is that sometimes other apps have stood out for being more innovative or for offering a better user experience, Telegram, Line or WeChat are some of them.
This is something that Facebook frequently tries to compensate (remember that they have owned it for some years), especially for their insistence on exploiting the potential that the messenger has in marketing matters.

The long-awaited Dark Mode

If confirmed, WhatsApp would be following the steps of YouTube and other applications such as Amazon Kindle, Pocket, Twitter or Reddit that already have a similar modality.
