Even with the rising competition from the likes of Instagram and TikTok, Snapchat’s popularity remains intact among youngsters. If you frequently use Snapchat during night hours, turn on dark mode to reduce eye strain. However, unlike the iPhone, the dark mode option isn’t readily available to everyone on Snapchat for Android. You must purchase the company’s subscription service, Snapchat+, to activate the dark theme on your top budget Android phone.
Snapchat introduced dark mode on the iPhone in 2021. The same never appeared on the company’s Android app. Even with growing requests from the Android community, Snapchat took more than two years to offer a dark theme on Android. To add insult to injury, the add-on is part of the Snapchat+ subscription only. Follow along to sign up for Snapchat+ and enjoy the dark theme along with other functions.
Sign up for Snapchat+
Since dark mode is one of the highly requested features on Snapchat for Android, the company has kept it exclusive to paid subscribers. We can’t confirm if the same will be available to general users in the future. Currently, subscribing to Snapchat+ is the only way to activate dark mode on Android. Follow the steps below.
- Launch Snapchat on Android.
- Tap your profile in the upper-left corner.
- Select the Settings gear in the upper-right corner.
- Select Snapchat+ and tap Subscribe.
- Check the exclusive, experimental, and pre-release features of Snapchat+. Tap Next.
- Check the pricing details and confirm your subscription.
Snapchat also offers a one-week free trial to check the new features. If you aren’t satisfied with the offering, cancel the trial before the due date. The price is $4 per month, $22 for six months, or $40 per year. The pricing varies from one region to another. Check the company’s official page to learn more
