    I was chatting on whatsapp, then i didnt look at my phone for 5 seconds, and when i looked back I saw that it turned dark theme with a wall paper

    Why?
    And now I can not get ti back to previous even if I select default theme or light theme etc.... How to return to previous? I was using default I had not done anything special for theme or wallaper

    I use latest version of android I guess, and my phone is samsung galaxy s9

    On Android 10 the latest WhatsApp will adopt a dark theme is you select that (WhatsApp Settings > Chats > Theme) or if you select "system default" and your system theme is dark. But on my Pixel (Android 10, March security patch) selecting the "light" theme in WhatsApp settings will turn it light, so the question is why doesn't that work on your S9?

    So, questions:

    1) Does your Samsung change theme with time of day? Just asking because you said that it changed colour during a WhatsApp session, and that's the simplest explanation for that (the app following the system). But that isn't yet a standard Android feature, so if your phone can do that it's a Samsung addition. The reason I'm asking is that if this is a manufacturer add-on it might interact differently with the WhatsApp app from the standard Android 10 theme selection (just a guess, but I'm looking for a reason the "light" theme might not work on your S9). What happens if you change system theme settings?

    2) You say it turned dark "with a wallpaper": what did you mean by that? WhatsApp chats by default have a wallpaper, though in light mode you might not have noticed it: it's a bit more visible in the dark theme. If that's all it is (a dark version of the standard) then all that's changed is the dark theme. If it's anything else then this might be pertinent to working out what's changed. If you select the Wallpaper in the "Chat" settings and turn it off does it go away (then you get a plain background in chats)?

WhatsApp from Facebook WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages. WHY USE WHATSAPP: • NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family, so you don't have to pay for every message or call.* There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp. • MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages. • FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they're in another country.* WhatsApp calls use your phone's Internet connection rather than your cellular plan's voice minutes. (Note: Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. Also, you can't access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp). • GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group chats with your contacts so you can easily stay in touch with your friends or family. • WHATSAPP WEB: You can also send and receive WhatsApp messages right from your computer's browser. • NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There's no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.* • SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone's existing address book. • ALWAYS LOGGED IN: With WhatsApp, you're always logged in so you don't miss messages. No more confusion about whether you're logged in or logged out. • QUICKLY CONNECT WITH YOUR CONTACTS: Your address book is used to quickly and easily connect you with your contacts who have WhatsApp so there's no need to add hard-to-remember usernames. • OFFLINE MESSAGES: Even if you miss your notifications or turn off your phone, WhatsApp will save your recent messages until the next time you use the app. • AND MUCH MORE: Share your location, exchange contacts, set custom wallpapers and notification sounds, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, and more! *Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. --------------------------------------------------------- We're always excited to hear from you!
