The new app from Instagram is launched in over 100 countries and has gained millions of users already in the early hours of its launch.
Social media apps are checked every hour and the traditional light mode can often impact your eyes. Threads app is no different.
But can you switch to a dark mode in Threads like in other social media apps? This article will discuss how to enable dark mode on the Threads app.
What Is A Dark Mode?
The dark mode is a setting that allows the screen of any device, or app to change its interface to a dark background with light text.
It is designed to reflect less light from the device screen thereby also maintaining readability without causing strain on the eyes.
It also changes the complete appearance of any app making it visually pleasing.
How To Enable Dark Mode On Instagram Threads App
The Threads app is very new and is still under development so it does not have all the features. The dark mode is currently not available on the app settings.
But the web version of the Threads app has dark mode settings.
To enable dark mode on the Threads web app, simply click on the logo at the top of the screen. The clicking on logo will switch between dark and light modes for the web app.
