Lastweek, it was all about Twitter remodifying its Night mode feature that allows it to automatically switches from regular mode to automatic.
WhatsApp, the messaging app which is owned by Facebook, acquired in 2014 for a huge sum of $21 billion, is about to introduce a new feature for its over 1.2 billion users to enjoy.
On the WhatsApp’s translation page, there is a request for the words Night Mode. However, this is not the type Night Mode feature that switches the regular black text on white background to white text on dark background, that produces an eye-friendly UI at night. This is a complete different feature from that.
The WhatsApp’s Night Mode feature works with the camera UI to produce pictures of better quality taken in dark areas or low-light conditions.
This new button may as well be made available for the video call aspect. The translation request was first made for iPhone, this simply means that Android users may have to wait for sometimes while iOS users would be the first to taste this new feature.
The WhatsApp camera interface lacks video filters which is already existing on Facebook and Instagram apps. It offers the option to zoom in/zoom out, a switch to turn on and of the LED flash, and also being able to switch from the rear-facing shooter to the front-facing camera.
However, if Night Mode does become a real feature, WhatsApp may find itself in demand by users who like to take photos irrespective the light condition.
