Summary List Placement

Many social media apps have a “dark mode” these days, allowing users to change the color of their app’s interface to darker tones instead of bright ones, which can look better and sometimes even save battery life.

For a long time, Snapchat has been one of the few major social media apps without dark mode. But that’s soon going to change — or, depending on where you live, it might have already changed.

Snapchat has a dark mode, but it isn’t widely available yet

Snapchat does have a dark mode, yes, but this feature still isn’t available to many users. Snapchat’s dark mode is currently only available for iPhone users in Australia and some parts of the US. Unfortunately, they haven’t revealed which parts those are.

To find out if you can use dark mode on Snapchat, and to enable it if you can, follow these steps.
