The Splash Screen is already visible to everyone on 2.19.297.
The Dark Splash Screen is not visible because the Dark Theme feature is not available yet.
WhatsApp is working very hard on the Dark Theme feature in the recent few updates, in order to ensure the best bug-free experience for you, before the release for everyone.
There is no issue if you have updated your WhatsApp beta version and it’s not visible for you, seen that it’s under development.
We have no details about when the Dark Theme feature will be released for everyone. So, for this reason, we invite you to be patient.
The tracker said this feature was spotted in WhatsApp Business beta for iOS 188.8.131.52 before being released on Android Beta recently. Beta users can try this out - if they applied for the beta program testing on Google Play, but if not, get the direct Apk.
Nevertheless, the tracker Said, "Some users might get the Dark Splash Screen, even if the Dark Theme is not enabled. It's a bug that also makes the bubbles dark, sometimes." Although the Dark Mode isn't yet available, and there isn't any release date yet, it is good to know it is under development as confirmed by wabetainfo (tracker).
