What is dark mode?
So, what is dark mode exactly? Well, many user interfaces use bright default colors and themes to make everything stand out better. A more colorful user interface is great, but it can become a bit eye-straining after looking at them for a while. That’s where dark mode comes into play. Dark mode is an alternate color scheme option that turns the user interface, well, darker.
Many applications, websites, and even operating systems have a dark mode (or night mode) option built into them. Enabling dark mode usually turns all white or light gray elements to black or dark gray. The result is a less bright user interface, which can be easier on the eyes.
How do I enable Dark Mode in Snapchat?
To enable dark mode in Snapchat:
