Almost every social media like Facebook, Instagram & Twitter has a feature to enable dark mode inside their app or on their web version.
One of the most popular picture and video sharing apps, “Snapchat” was testing this feature since last year.
The good news is that the new dark mode feature has now rolled out widely to most of the iOS or iPhone users.
A new tab known as App Appearance has been added to enable the dark-mode or switch to different themes.
Snapchat users can now enable this feature under the settings menu and view photos and videos & interact within an app with a dark theme.
Below are the steps on how to enable it.
