Instagram Starts Dark Mode: Here's How You Can Get it
Updated: Mar 29
Dark mode everything seems to be the motto going around right now/ Google has updated most of its apps to support the dark theme, which fits well with the addition of system-wide dark mode in Android 10. Even IOS 13 brings a dark mode in tow. So, the latest app to board the dark mode hype train is instagram.
Yeah, Instagram is currently testing an AMOLED dark mode on Android and it looks absolutely stunning. I was utterly confused when the updated theme applied to my own Instagram app on the Samsung S10e, so much so that I started frantically searching for the force dark mode option.
You'll need to be running Android 10 and – of course – have the latest version of Instagram installed.
Go into Settings > Display and tap Advanced
Select Dark from the Device theme menu
Start up Instagram and glory in the gloom!
