It is a dark grey background in an off-white colour and its advantage is that it cuts down glare that improves contrast and readability. Aimed to minimize eye fatigue, the Dark mode uses colours that are closer to the system defaults on Android and iPhone.
According to a blogpost, the team WhatsApp worked on improving readability of content and information hierarchy. But the real objective of the Dark mode is to make WhatsApp more convenient to use in different screens. And the company used colour and other design elements in line with Dark mode to achieve the objective.

Team WhatsApp has created a video “Hello Darkness” to educate users about the Dark mode and its advantages. To make the video more interesting, the team has added a soundtrack by previously-unreleased version of The Sound of Silence by American musician Paul Simon.
Use Dark mode
Android 10 and iOS 13 users can add Dark mode by switching to the system-wide Dark mode from the device settings. But users of Android Pie and earlier versions would need manual settings – WhatsApp settings > Chats > Theme > Dark. It is also said that the Dark mode is in contrast to the digital detox initiatives.
