I also didn't have "dark_theme" in my xml, so I added the whole line. Still there was no change. But I saw in WhatsApp settings there was a new option to change theme. That works :)

Yeah I just noticed that, with the last update (yesterday) the line disappears
Yes it is enough to add the line and theme option will show. Maybe it is possible to do it this with Facebook, question which file has to be edited.
Do you know?

Best Regards.

    You need:
    Root
    The latest whatsapp beta

    1) With a text editor go to
    Code:
    /data/data/com.whatsapp/shared_prefs and open "com.whatsapp_preferences.xml"

    2) Add the following line
    Code:
    <boolean name="dark_mode" value="true" />

    3) Save and exit :)

    Thanks, but the beta program is full. But you don't need the beta to enable the dark mode toggle, it works in the regular version.

    Anyone know how to make dark mode persist after the app gets force closed?

    Same as others: I don't have the beta, and the line in the xml was not present. Adding the entire line in Step 2 in OP gave me the option in the app to switch to dark mode.

    My setting always resets to light after i close the app in task Manager. Anyone got the same problem?

    Hmm, same. When I force stop the app, or if I swipe up from recents to kill, it goes back to the Light theme.
