"I always recommend to back up your chat history before updating to the new beta: if there is something wrong with the update, your messages are safe on iCloud and you can downgrade to the precedent version from TestFlight or App Store," WABetaInfo reported on Friday.

This is also available on the Android beta app. The update also showed how text bubbles would look in dark mode on WhatsApp. This was first available on beta version for Android. The company is expected to introduce dark mode for users globally soon.
