WhatsApp latest beta update show how dark mode looks on the app

Published

on

Dark mode on WhatsApp is possibly one of the most awaited features. The rumoured dark mode on WhatsApp is still in the works and a new update gives more glimpse of this new UI change.

WhatsApp’s latest beta update for Android shows further developments of dark mode, WABetaInfo reported. Like past dark mode sightings, this one isn’t available for WhatsApp public beta users either. With frequent appearances of WhatsApp dark mode, this feature is expected to roll out soon for all users.

On WhatsApp, dark mode will be known as ‘dark theme’ which is also the same on Android 10 and iOS 13. The latest update shows how text bubbles on WhatsApp will look when dark theme is turned on. Unlike Instagram, WhatsApp has a ‘night blue’ colour background on the app. The text is highlighted in white while the background has a black-bluish combination of colour.

As noted in the previous update, dark theme on WhatsApp isn’t refined yet and only some parts of the app have been optimised as yet. WhatsApp users will be able to set dark theme in the app manually. Users can also choose to sync dark theme on WhatsApp with their phone’s default dark theme. This means that whenever users turn on dark theme on their phone, WhatsApp will automatically switch to it too.

WhatsApp hasn’t confirmed when or if it will introduce dark theme on its app. The Facebook-owned company could roll out dark theme for all users even without introducing it first on public beta.

Reliance Jio, Airtel and Vodafone Idea are trolling each other over 6 paise per minute calling charges

Published

on

Reliance Jio has drawn sharp reaction from its subscribers as well as rival operators after it announced charging users 6 paise per minute for voice calls. If official press releases were not enough, Vodafone Idea, Airtel and Reliance Jio are now taking it to social networking platforms to troll each over the issue.

Following Reliance Jio’s U-turn on free voice calls, Airtel published a short clip with a caption stating, “For some, unlimited means something else. For us, unlimited voice calls have always meant truly unlimited voice calls. Switch to Airtel now.”

The clip featured an equation which says free is not equal to 6 paise per minute. In another tweet, Airtel wrote, “When we say unlimited calling, we mean just that.” 

Vodafone Idea was also not behind. The operator in its tweet said, “Relax, there will be no charges on Vodafone calls to other networks. So keep enjoying what we promised you – truly free calls on Vodafone unlimited plans.”

As expected, Reliance Jio fired shots at both the operators with a series of tweets. Taking a dig at Airtel, Reliance Jio said in a tweet, “6 paise/minute Air Toll” along with a disclaimer, “Every time a Jio customer makes an outgoing mobile call to other operator’s customer, 6 paise/minute is paid to the other operator as Interconnect Usage Charges (IUC), as per Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Regulations.”

In its latest tweet, Reliance Jio said “6 paise/minute. We ain’t asking for it. They are” along with the above mentioned disclaimer.

In the case you haven’t caught up with why these telecom companies are at it again, here’s a brief recap for you.

Reliance Jio earlier this week announced dropping free voice calls for its subscribers. While the Jio-to-Jio calls remain free, calls on other networks such as Airtel and Vodafone Idea will now be charged 6 paise per minute – as per TRAI’s IUC norms.

The operator said it had paid nearly Rs 13,500 crore to rival networks as IUC in the last three years. It pointed out that the regulator had planned to end IUC regime by January 2020. The telecom regulator, however, recently floated a new consultation paper on IUC indicating a possible deferment.
