πŸŒ’ Enable Dark Mode on WhatsApp Web

saqibameen profile image Saqib Ameen ・1 min read

WhatsApp Web is super convenient β€” we can work and communicate without checking the phone repeatedly. At times, it could be annoying for the light-sensitive people, and in general, at night. So I wrote this extension, which enables dark mode on WhatsApp Web and allows you to work seamlessly.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» Setup

Download the extension here. When you install the extension, it automatically enables the dark mode. You can always change the mode using the toggle button from the extension menu. Your preferences are saved for the future.

🧢 Features

  • Enables Dark Mode on WhatsApp Web
  • Remember your preference
  • Automatically set the mode next time

πŸ“‹ Permissions

It only requires permission to the WhatsApp Web page to manage the colors. No extra permissions.

πŸ€” What's Next?

  • Refactor the code and open-source it
  • Extension for Firefox
