From the launch of Android 10 the demand of dark mode in apps is increased so much that many top tier apps are getting this mode. Earlier this month Instagram started to roll-out dark mode to both Android and iOS apps. But the dark mode in Instagram is available only for Android 10 smartphones, and few Android 9 smartphones. Twitter also has dark mode in iOS named as ‘Lights Out’, but it’s not available on Android until now.
Now Twitter has started to roll-out Lights Out mode to their Android app. Though there’s already Dim mode which changes the app layout colour into very dark blue. But as many Android smartphones this year has OLED display, true black colour is a gem for them because on OLED black looks very deep and accurate. Also it saves a bit more battery. This Lights Out mode changes the app layout colour to pure black, giving a really nice experience on OLED display and saves battery as well. This Lights Out mode is available on latest app version 8.18.0 and can be enabled by following method :
- Update the app to the latest version from Play Store.
- Open the app – Go to settings – Display & Sound – Dark Mode appearance – Lights Out.
- It will get enabled as you can see from the screenshots below (follow me on Twitter).
If there’s no option for Lights Out :
- Go to app settings – Force stop the app.
- Go to storage & cache option in app settings – clear storage.
- Open the app & immediately switch to app settings and again force stop the app.
- Now open Twitter – Go to settings – enable Lights Out.
This method should work as it’s working on many Android smartphones. But you need to switch between app and app settings and force stop it quickly, keep the app settings in recent tabs. Though at first you might find this mode a bit weird, but giving it some time will surely change your perspective. Well, have you tried this Lights Out mode on Twitter yet?
