WABetaInfo surfaced some screenshots that show the new branding alongside the familiar light version of WhatsApp and a new dark theme:

The changes are part of WhatsApp’s upcoming beta release. Both the Android and iOS beta programmes for WhatsApp are full though, so unless you’re already signed up you’ll have to wait till this release goes public, which could be sometime.

When it does happen, hopefully ‘FACEBOOK’ being plastered all over WhatsApp (and probably Instagram soon) will be softened by the fact there’ll be one more app in the dark mode squad.
