According to a report from WABetaInfo, the new version also fixes a bug with the recently launched Dark Theme. The bug prevented iPhone SE and iPhone 8 users from enabling Dark Mode on their WhatsApp. Taking a closer look at the share sheet integration, users can finally see their WhatsApp contacts on the share sheet. This makes sharing a much quicker experience than selecting WhatsApp, opening the app and then selecting the conversation. The report also noted that users need to converse with a contact frequently to bring them up in the share sheet. This means that the share sheet contacts are automatically generated.
