How to activate Snapchat dark mode on your iPhone
Recently, many social media apps have included a new feature called âdark modeâ. This basically allows users to change their app’s interface color to darker tones instead of light tones. Many apps, such as YouTube and Twitter, use this feature on both their mobile and PC versions. Not only is it a little easier on the eyes due to the decrease in brightness, but it only dramatically reduces battery life. Some people even find it more aesthetic.
For a long time, Snapchat was one of the few mobile apps that didn’t have dark mode. However, since last year, they started making it available to iPhone users. Most iPhone users will now be able to apply Snapchat’s dark mode, but unfortunately it is still not possible for Android users to do so.
To check if Snapchat dark mode is available on your iPhone and how to activate it, follow these steps:
- Open the Snapchat app on the device you’re using and sign in if prompted.
- Click on your profile picture, which can be found in the upper left corner of the screen.
- Tap the “Settings” icon. It’s located in the top right corner of your profile page and looks like a gear.
- In the âMy Accountâ segment of the Settings menu, scroll down to the option labeled âAppearance of Appearanceâ. Note that you may not find âApp Appearanceâ in the list. If so, you can’t use dark mode yet.
- When you see the âApp Appearanceâ menu, tap âAlways Darkâ. You can also select âMatch Systemâ to sync the app with your iPhone settings. This means that if your iPhone automatically switches from light to dark throughout the day due to changes in the lighting in your surroundings, Snapchat will do the same.
Gadgets 360 was able to include Dark Mode on Snapchat for iOS version 18.104.22.168. This is the most recent update available for download through the App Store. But as of now, it’s unclear whether users will need to install the latest version on their Apple devices to take advantage of Dark Mode, or if this is just a change in the app’s server. .
In the near future, it is expected that Snapchat will include this feature for Android users. In the meantime, users can manually use dark mode using Developer options on their Android smartphones.
