Here’s how to enable Dark Mode or Dark Theme on some popular social media apps, including Instagram, Twitter, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and more.
WhatsApp has recently added this mode to its Android beta users, and it is expected to roll out the Dark theme to the public soon. Google’s latest Android 10 OS also supports a system-wide dark theme. Last year, Apple also released iOS 13 with dark mode support. When turned on, you get a black background, which is easy on your eyes. In theory, it helps save a certain amount of battery life on phones, especially those with AMOLED panels. If you want to use it on all the apps that you are using on a daily basis, see how to enable it on some popular social media apps. These include Instagram, Twitter, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and more.
How to enable this mode on popular social media APPS
Dark mode toggle feature is not in the app. Instead, it is automatically turned on when the user enables system-wide dark mode. this Mode turns the entire app into a shade of black. These include feeds, stories and search tabs. All you need to do is enable your phone’s Settings> Select Display> Dark theme.
If you still can’t find it, just type dark theme on the search bar (in the settings). After enabling it, all you need to do is open Instagram, and it will automatically sync to this mode. Instagram says to use dark mode on its app, “You need to update your device’s OS to iOS 13 or Android 10 as well as your Instagram app.”
Facebook has already added this Mode to Messenger. Currently, Facebook plans to add a dark theme to its Android app. A recent report reported that Facebook has rolled out this feature for some Android beta users, meaning that the app may soon gain support for it. Coming back to Messenger, to use the app in dark mode, you just need to open the Facebook Messenger app. Tap on the profile icon, which you will find at the top left corner of the window.

First of all, you have to go to the “Settings” section inside WhatsApp. You can do this by tapping the three-dot menu on the top right corner. Once here, one needs to tap on the “Chat” section and then click on the “Theme” option in the “Display” section. On tapping the “Theme” section, you will be greeted with three options. The first option here is called “System Default” which will change according to the overall Android theme.
Twitter also provides support for it. Unlike Instagram, you can enable this Mode directly from Twitter’s app. In the settings of the app, you will get a dedicated Dark Mode and a Dark Appearance Mode. The first allows you to enable the dark theme, and the second mode gives you two options, including “Dim” and “Lights Out”.
To enable this mode, go to the Settings and Privacy section of the application, and then tap on the Display and Sound tab. Tap on the dark mode slider to turn on the feature. After turning on this mode, you can tap on the Mode Appearance and select “Dim” or “Lights Out”.
