Go To Bitmoji
Begin by going to the Bitmoji that’s located in the top left corner of your Snapchat screen.
Tapping the above will take you to your profile page. From here, select the settings icon, which is the furthest icon at the top left-hand corner.
You’ll now see a drop-down menu from ‘My Account’. Tap on ‘App Appearance’ and you’ll see a few options.
From the options, select ‘Always Dark’, and this will convert your screen from light to dark mode when using this app.
Can Android Users Enable Dark Mode In Snapchat?
Unfortunately, there is no dark mode setting for Snapchat on Android phones. However, if the bright screen is bothering you, you can turn on Android’s own dark mode.
You may find this by swiping down from the top of your home screen and selecting it in the notification panel. Alternatively, head to your Settings app (your ‘gear icon’), and choose ‘Display’. You’ll find the system-wide Dark Mode and other available display settings here.
The other option is to force Dark Mode in Snapchat on Android with a little workaround.
To conclude, enabling dark mode can be easier on your eyes when it comes to screens, as the light font on a dark screen has less contrast. It may extend battery life, and some users prefer the sleek look this screen setting provides.
Whether in-app or across your whole device, give Dark Mode a go and see if it’s for you.
