In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to enable Dark Mode on Snapchat on Android. Dark Mode has gained popularity in recent years due to its sleek and visually pleasing appearance, as well as its potential benefits for reducing eye strain and saving battery life.

Step 1: Update Snapchat

The first step is to ensure that you have the latest version of Snapchat installed on your Android device. Open the Google Play Store and search for “Snapchat”. If an update is available, tap on the “Update” button to install the latest version.

Step 2: Access Settings

Once you have updated Snapchat, open the app and log in to your account if necessary. Tap on your profile icon located at the top left corner of the screen to access your profile page. From there, tap on the gear-shaped “Settings” icon located at the top right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Enable Dark Mode

Within the Snapchat settings menu, scroll down until you find the “App Appearance” option. Tap on it to proceed.

You will be presented with three options: “Always Light”, “Always Dark”, and “Match System”.

To enable Dark Mode, select “Always Dark”. This will set a dark theme for your Snapchat interface regardless of your system’s default settings.


If you choose “Match System”, Snapchat will automatically switch between light and dark modes based on your device’s system settings. If you prefer a consistent dark theme for Snapchat, it is recommended to select “Always Dark”.

Step 4: Enjoy Dark Mode

Congratulations! You have successfully enabled Dark Mode on Snapchat for Android. The app’s interface will now be transformed into a dark color scheme, providing a more comfortable viewing experience, especially in low-light environments.

Additional Tips:

If you want to revert back to the default light theme, simply follow the same steps and select “Always Light” in the “App Appearance” settings.

Keep in mind that Dark Mode may not be available on older versions of Snapchat. To ensure compatibility and access to the latest features, it is recommended to keep your Snapchat app updated.


Dark Mode offers a refreshing change to the traditional bright interfaces of apps like Snapchat. By following the simple steps outlined in this tutorial, you can easily enable Dark Mode on your Android device.

Remember to regularly update your Snapchat app to enjoy the latest features and improvements. Now go ahead and enjoy a more visually appealing and comfortable Snapchat experience with Dark Mode!
