How to turn on dark mode on Snapchat

Apple and Google introduced the ability to toggle between light and dark modes on iPhones and Android phones. This functionality is also available for third-party apps like Snapchat.

Dark mode is a highly appreciated feature. It allows for more comfortable viewing at night, minimizes disturbance in dark environments, and many users simply prefer its aesthetic. Here’s how to activate dark mode on Snapchat.
