How to Get Snapchat Dark Mode [Android & iOS]

Snapchat Dark Mode, is it available or not?

Snapchat is one of the users’ favorite chatting apps as it has a lot of cool features. Not only your snap, everything you send on Snapchat deletes automatically after 24 hours. Snapchat releases new updates and features very frequently. Dark Mode is one of the recent trending news in the tech industry. Is Dark mode available for Snapchat? The answer is yes.

Well, the dark mode on Snapchat arrived a little late than the other social media apps. Before Snapchat, communication apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Reddit have released the dark theme. Still, there are limitations in the Snapchat dark theme. Only in the iOS app, Snapchat has released the dark theme. For Android users, the app has no dedicated dark mode.
