While you may expect the dark mode to be enabled by default, this is not the case. You need to go into an app or an operating system’s settings to enable this feature manually.

Some apps, however, may enable dark mode by default if you are using dark mode on your phone. Let’s take a look at how to enable dark mode on Snapchat’s mobile app as well as on Snapchat Web.

Enabling Dark Mode on App

Turning on dark mode within the Snapchat app is easy. All you have to do is head on over into the app appearance and toggle dark mode on. This method is the same on both iOS and Android. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  3. Then tap the gear icon at the top right to go to Settings.
  4. Now, scroll down in My Account and find App Appearance.
  5. Lastly, go into App Appearance and switch to Always Dark. If your phone is set to dark mode already, you can also select Match System as it will also switch Snapchat to dark mode.

Enabling Dark Mode on Web

Did you know that there is Snapchat for Web? It allows you to use your webcam as a camera and provides Snapchat functionalities on your web browser. To enable dark mode on Snapchat Web, follow these simple steps:
