According to multiple reports, Snapchat is testing dark mode on iOS with a small percentage of users.
Most platforms these days already have a dark mode, and Snapchat is about to join the party. According to various sources, Snapchat last week confirmed the feature’s test – albeit with a tiny percentage of users – and only on iOS for the time being.
The feature was spotted by Appleosophy last week, which then shared screenshots of it. If you’re part of the test, you can find a dark mode option within the new ‘App appearance’ section in the app’s settings.
As is the case with most other platforms, you can choose your app display settings according to your global device settings, allowing you to switch to dark mode automatically at a specific time of the day – or choose to use dark mode all the time.
It’s taken Snapchat some time (almost 500 days since Apple brought dark mode to iOS), but it’s actually great news for dark mode fans. There is no further information about when or whether the test will expand to more users.
However, as is mostly the case, the test itself is enough evidence of the intent to launch the feature soon.
Snapchat is currently one of the very few social apps that don’t have a dark mode option. Most made the feature optional following iOS and Android updates that made this possible globally.
Next in line? LinkedIn, perhaps?
