After the release of the dark mode feature on most of our favorite apps, including WhatsApp and Facebook, users were anticipating the same for Snapchat. To everyone’s relief, earlier this year dark mode for Snapchat was also launched. Snapchatters can now view stories and interact with each other using the subtle dark theme, which is not only soothing to the eyes but has made the app more user-friendly.
While enabling the dark mode on iPhone is quite a straightforward process, it is a bit tricky for Android users. In this article, we will take you through the steps required to get dark mode on iPhone as well as Android.
