WhatsApp dark mode can now be implemented in the WhatsApp Web browser client as well, without disrupting other browser pages or installing any plugin on to your browser. The dark mode implementation gives users the darkened theme without taking anything away from the performance of other open tabs on your browser, and it is only a simple little trick that gets the job done.

To get dark mode on WhatsApp Web, here are the steps to follow:

  1. Once the WhatsApp Web client is open, right click on the empty area outside of the chats, and click on the ‘inspect page’ tab. If you cannot see an empty area around your WhatsApp browser client, use Ctrl + ‘-‘ (minus) to zoom out.
  2. Once you click on ‘inspect’, a splitscreen view will open up to show you the coding elements of the WhatsApp Web page. On this section, towards the very top of the chart, find the line that reads body class=“web”.
  3. Double-click on this line to switch on the cursor, and change ‘web’ to ‘web dark’. Now, the line of code here should look like body class=“web dark”.

While the background of the chat windows are set to a super dark shade of olive green, the chat tabs are set to a slightly lighter shade. Received messages show up on a grey text snippet, while sent messages are encased in lighter green bubbles. Despite not being officially baked into the WhatsApp Web client’s settings, the overall dark theme looks quite appealing and professionally put together.

WhatsApp Dark Mode on Android and iOS phones were rolled out with much hype and fanfare. Through 2019, it made for the most wanted WhatsApp feature among its 2 billion-odd active users, and going forward, WhatsApp’s implementation of a system-tied dark theme has been received quite well among its audience.,Dark,Mode,for,Web:,How,to,Get,Dark,Theme,on,WhatsApp,Browser,Interface,how,to,enable,dark,mode,in,whatsapp,web,Whatsapp,&publish_min=2020-05-21T01:52:27.000Z&publish_max=2020-05-23T01:52:27.000Z&sort_by=date-relevance&order_by=0&limit=2

We are still about three weeks away for the ongoing PUBG Mobile season to finish. However, details of season 13 are already out in the open. If the information shared by reliable YouTuber Mr Ghost Gaming is true, then we can expect the next season to have a new theme inspired by toys.

According to a video shared by the YouTuber, the next season will be titled ‘Toys Playground’ and will have most of the skins and clothing inspired by your childhood memories. Expect a lot of colourful stuff happening all around and by the looks of the video, there will be some Power Rangers inspired sets and some of them look a lot like Gundam robots.

The video confirms a new colourful gun skin for the Vector which seems to take inspiration from Lego. A similar skin can be seen for the P92 pistol. The 100 RP (Royale Pass) reward will be a complete set as it is with all seasons. This time there will be a choice between two sets, the Lava Superman or the Flash Superman. As I mentioned earlier, these sets look a lot like they have been inspired from Power Rangers.

There’s also something called the ‘Tribal Treasure’ which includes a cool looking outfit with a Ram skull as a headgear. There are also some other items like a leather set with some padding, a unique headgear, a parachute skin, an AUG skin and more.

Lastly, a new character might be introduced with season 13. Andy seems to be a magician but we are not sure as to what exactly his abilities will be. There are also some new voice chat commands that will be added with the upcoming season. It is expected that season 12 will finish around May 12, so we can expect season 13 to drop around May 13. There is also news that update 0.18.0 will also introduce a refresh to the Miramar map.

The next season is going to be titled ‘2GETHER WE PLAY.’ This information comes courtesy a video posted by Mr. Ghost Gaming, who is known to be pretty accurate when it comes to leaks around PUBG Mobile. The theme is going to be all colourful and as with every new season, expect a variety of outfits. Since this is an early leak, we have only a handful of expected in-game items that will make their way to season 12.

Some of these include a new colourful skin for the QBZ and a matching outfit as a Royale Pass purchase bonus. There are also some outfits that users will get through a lucky draw and they seem to be inspired by playing cards. Apart from that, there are a variety of backpack, helmet and gun skins besides avatars and avatar frames.
