Following the introduction of Apple's system-wide dark mode on iOS 13 and a similar feature in Android 10, users have been able to switch to a white-on-black theme for their system elements and for supported apps. Now, Instagram is going over to the dark side as well, offering a dark mode in its app for both mobile operating systems.

Starting today, you can use Instagram in dark mode on iOS 13 or Android 10. Turn dark mode on your phone to try it out. 👀

Instagram's dark mode is responsive to the iOS or Android system settings. If you have dark mode enabled on your device, when you get the new Instagram update you should see that the app automatically switches to a black background with white text. Twitter's iOS app, however, works differently: you can set it to correspond to system-wide dark mode settings or you can enable dark mode manually.

 

To enable dark mode on your iPhone, go to Settings, then Display and Brightness and select Dark. 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.

 

To enable dark mode on your Android device, go to Settings, then Display, then Advanced and then select Dark from the Device theme menu.

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.

For Android Pie and 10, make sure that dark mode is activated (check display settings to activate it) and version 114.0.0.38.120 is installed to enjoy the dark mode. The update should be rolled out on Play Store, but if you can't wait, you can download it here:

p/s: The 114.0.0.38.120 update has several variants, you might need to choose the right version and the latest. For instance, I update my Instagram using APKPure app, and it offers version 114.0.0.28.120 (176649511) to install on my Xiaomi Redmi 3s with custom ROM based on Android Pie (Evolution OS) installed. Installing this particular build will toggle the dark mode on Instagram.

 

p/s 2: It's worth to note that dark mode in Instagram can only be toggled if you enable dark mode via display settings, and you cannot toggle it within Instagram’s settings menu.
