Today Instagram became the latest app that offers a dark mode for its interface. The feature was in beta for some time and is finally available for the masses. While the official Twitter post from Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri mentions the feature is live for iOS 13 and Android 10 devices, it’s also working on Android 9 phones which support a system-wide dark mode. The feature is triggered automatically once you toggle the dark theme in your device settings.
The core functionality of the app remains unchanged. Dark colors replace all previously white user interface elements while other aspects like the top and bottom navigation bars feature a dark gray color.
While the added dark color palette is a nice addition you cannot toggle it within Instagram’s settings menu. We hope this comes in future updates.
