Wondering how to turn your Snapchat to dark mode? Well, wonder no more as we run through the steps on how to personalise everyone’s favourite app!

Launched in 2011, Snapchat has been around almost 10 years. It’s used all over the world and rose to popularity due to its cool filters and novel feature of its pictures and messages disappearing after being opened.

Where is Snapchat dark mode available?

The Snapchat app is available in 37 languages and is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, however, Snapchat’s dark mode isn’t available all over the world just yet.

Dark mode is said to currently only be available in Australia and for some people in the USA – hopefully, the new mode will be ready for the rest of the world to use in no time.

Some UK and US Snapchat users have taken to Twitter to express their confusion over where dark mode is for them!

How to turn your Snapchat to dark mode

For those who are geographically able to get dark mode up and running, let’s take a look at how exactly you can turn it on according to How-To Tech.

  • Firstly, open the Snapchat app.
  • Locate your profile photo in the top-left of the screen and select it.
  • Click the gear icon to head to settings (top right-hand corner).
  • Scroll down to “App appearance”.
  • Now, you should be presented with three options: “Match system”, “Always light” and “Always dark”.
  • Here, you should select “Always dark” to enable dark mode.

Now dark mode should be up and running. Alternatively, if your phone is set to dark mode in general, you could select “Match system” and Snapchat will match the dark mode settings of your device.

How to get dark mode on SC: iPhone

At the time of writing, dark mode for Snapchat is said to only be available in select locations as well as iPhone devices only.

Ensure that your Snapchat app is fully up-to-date by heading to the App Store and enabling any updates.

Dark mode is likely to be rolled out for Android devices shortly. However, there’s no confirmed date on when exactly it will be available for everyone.

By the looks of Twitter, Snapchat’s dark mode is long overdue. Many other apps have had dark mode for a long time. Until now, the photo and video sharing app has carried on with its very bright yellow and white display.
