|Instagram Dark Mode|
Instagram Dark mode is a craved feature that has really made the rounds in recent months. As more devices get Android 10, we can expect a lot more app developers to add dark themes in their apps. Here’s hoping that we’ll see a wave of new apps rather than the current trickle we’re seeing. Facebook has already added it to Messenger and is testing it in the main app and WhatsApp, so it’s amazing seeing the company add support for it in Instagram finally.Instagram Dark Mode would be available for all users through its stable release channel to be released soon.
This dark mode isn’t perfectly dark in all parts, but it does theme the majority of the UI elements in Instagram. While the black background color doesn’t really save battery life over the dark grays you’ll find in many Google apps, it can make it more enjoyable to scroll through your Instagram feed at night. There’s a nice contrast between the black and gray parts, making content easier to see without changing the actual content.
Notably, this dark theme supports the Android 10 toggle, but it also supports Samsung’s Night Mode toggle on Android Pie. Presumably, all Pie users can access it with a handful of settings.
