Zoom for Android gets official dark mode, improved Chat UI

The popular video conferencing app just got a whole lot darker

Zoom icon on iOS

Zoom has officially launched dark mode on Android via ‘version 5.2.42588.0803’ of the app.

As Android Police notes, though, there doesn’t appear to be a manual toggle for dark mode in the app. Instead, Zoom will automatically switch to dark mode as per your device settings.

In addition to dark mode, Zoom has added new reactions, such as ‘Heart,’ ‘Laughing,’ ‘Hushed/Astonished,’ and ‘Party.’ Further, the app now has an improved Chat UI, aspect ratio toggle for video feeds, a security section when scheduling a meeting and more.
