If you love to use Snapchat at night or in low-light settings, you’ll be happy to hear that it now has an official dark mode that allows you to do just that!

Next, tap on Manage, followed by Additional Services. Scroll through these services until you find Dark Mode; tap on it. This will bring up a toggle button with an arrow pointing down—tap it again to turn Dark Mode on for all of your devices! That's all there is to it; when Dark Mode is turned on, everything will be dark gray instead of white. If you want things back to normal after you're done taking advantage of Dark Mode at night, just go back into Settings > Additional Services > Dark Theme.
