Instagram for iOS update adds long-awaited Dark Mode support

Similar to numerous other apps, Instagram has been updated to feature iOS 13's new dark mode. In Android 10, switch on Dark Mode under Settings then launch the Instagram App to find it in Dark Mode.

Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri said in a tweet Tuesday that dark mode is available for both iOS and Android users, though neither app appears to allow users to toggle the feature within the app itself. There's also a toggle to enable Automatic mode in which your iPhone will change to dark mode at night and go back to light mode during the day.

Starting today, you can use Instagram in dark mode on iOS 13 or Android 10. The feature is also available for Android. Turn dark mode on your phone to try it out.

It took Facebook quite a bit of time to bring a dark theme to Instagram.

She went down to her knees for a loose ball just over five minutes into the game, was subbed out and went straight to the tunnel. Washington took a 17-point lead in the first quarter and led 41-27 in the second quarter before CT went on a 12-0 run.

Dark mode is the it-thing right now, growing increasingly popular on several platforms and devices, including Twitter, Samsung Galaxy smartphones, Google's Chrome browser, Windows 10 and Apple's iOS and MacOS software.

Google has made a decision to offer a dark gray background, and combine that with shades of gray and white colors for its apps. On some displays, black pixels require no power at all.

Has the dark theme for the Google Play Store gone active on your Galaxy smartphone or tablet?

This is what the newly introduced Instagram dark mode theme looks like.
