How to Get Snapchat Dark Mode [Android & iOS]


Snapchat is one of the favorite chatting apps of the users as it has a lot of great features. Not just your Snap, everything you send to Snapchat is automatically deleted after 24 hours. Snapchat frequently releases new updates and features. Dark Mode is one of the latest trending news in the tech industry. Is Dark Mode available for Snapchat? The answer is yes.


Well, the dark mode on Snapchat arrived a little later than other social media apps. Before Snapchat, communication apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Reddit have released a dark theme. Still, there are limitations to the Snapchat Dark theme. Only in the iOS app, Snapchat has released a dark theme. For Android users, there is no dark mode in the app.

Unlike iPhones, Android devices do not have native Dark Mode support for Snapchat. If you need to use the Snapchat app in dark mode, you need to tweak your smartphone settings a bit.

#3 Now, go to the Settings main page and scroll down until you see the About phone section.

#4 Click on it and select Software Information.

#5 Tap on the Build Number option repeatedly until you see a notification stating that the Developer option is enabled.


#6 Now, get back to the Setting page and select the Developer options menu.

#7 Now, enable the Override force-dark (or Force Dark mode for Samsung smartphones) to get the dark mode on Snapchat.
