The above tweet from WABetaInfo shows some of the issues bugging the Beta version. They remarked that
“WhatsApp can fix these in 15 minutes. The real problem is that we don’t know when they will do.”
They are also saying the dark mode may be visible – that is when trying to pick a picture or a file from your phone the dark mode is maintained.
