The company is working on a new feature that will allow users to play Netflix trailers within the app. This is the first time when this type of third party service included inside it.
WhatsApp Dark Mode
While we already know how WhatsApp’s Dark Mode will look like on Android smartphones, WABetainfo reports WhatsApp will offer three types of Dark Mode settings to iPhone users.
With the first configuration, WhatsApp adopts a darker color, in line with the dark mode on native iOS apps with the iOS 13 update.
The second configuration makes the WhatsApp on iOS lighter intensity of dark color including table and cell background.
Right now, these two settings have been spotted in the early version of WhatsApp. The third configuration is likely to be available soon.
Separately, WhatsApp for Android beta has received a small update to Dark Mode which includes the lock icon in the Dark Bubble tweaked with better design.

With the update, WhatsApp may soon allow users to watch Netflix trailers within the application. According to Wabetainfo, WhatsApp will show you a large video thumbnail with a Play icon – similar to video links from YouTube.
Furthermore, if you tap on the play button, you can watch the Netflix trailer inside the app. This functionality appears to be quite similar to how the picture-in-picture mode works on WhatsApp.
