- Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp to add new features to make lives of its users easy
- Users can expect voice and video calling feature on WhatsApp web as well
- WhatsApp is also likely to add colours to Dark Theme
Facebook-owned international messaging application, WhatsApp, is working on adding loads of new features to make it more user friendly. WhatsApp is likely to receive an update with more colours for the Dark Theme and also enabling calling on the web.
Previously, reports suggested that WhatsApp is working on rolling out multi-device support for its beta users and is also testing new features which includes search messages by date, redesigning of storage and more.
WAbetainfo’s latest reports points that WhatsApp could likely add new colours to the existing Dark Theme along with allowing users to make both voice and video calls via WhatsApp Web. Earlier, reports claimed that WhatsApp is developing ways to implement Dark Theme for the WhatsApp web which could be used on desktops and other bigger devices.
Now the Facebook-owned messaging app might add different colours to the dark theme.
Report from WAbetainfo said, “Today, thanks to the 2.2025.5 update, we have discovered that WhatsApp is working on a different Dark Theme using alternative dark colors (they are doing the same for the dark iOS bubbles),”
As per the stills shared, grey, green, and bright yellow colours are visible on WhatsApp. Once the features are added to the build, a user will be able to enable it on WhatsApp via navigating through the app’s setting.

Though the feature is still being developed, once ready, it will be available for all i.e. Android, iOS and WhatsApp web.
Along with this, the report from WAbetainfor also says that WhatsApp is currently working on implementing both Voice and Video calling feature on WhatsApp Web. This feature is available on both iOS and Android app where all you need to do it scan a QR code on a web browser through WhatsApp application.
The company also plans to allow its users to make group calls via WhatsApp web. Once the feature hit the market, it will be a huge competition to Google Meet and Zoom which, during Work From Home, gained a lot of user base.
Earlier, it was revealed that the Facebook-owned messaging app is also planning to integrate Messenger Rooms into the application. The Messenger Room from Facebook allows a maximum of 50 people to join any video call could also make an entry in WhatsApp as per the stills shared by WAbetainfo showing a messenger icon on the share sheet.
What people would find fascinating is that a user will not have to have a Facebook account if he/ she would want to join a call on Rooms. The WhatsApp feature tracker stated that the beta update version on Android of the application had traces of Messenger Rooms being integrated into WhatsApp. It added that the messaging application is also working to add the Messenger Rooms shortcut in its 2.2019.6 Web update.
