The Facebook-owned social media app Instagram started to support Dark mode initially for iOS back in October 2019. Later on, they released the dark mode for Androids too. Instagram is one of the most popular social media apps in today’s world. People usually share their photos as a post as well as stories. Formerly, Instagram was running on a completely white background which was a nightmare to use at night, as it tends to give strain on our eyes. However, recently Instagram pushed the Dark mode APK via beta as well as stable channel. It features a dark background and respects Android’s dark mode, dark theme, or night mode options.; making it eye-friendly as well as battery friendly too. Here, download the latest stable Instagram dark mode APK officially from Play Store.
The latest version of Instagram supports Dark mode and is more stable on most Android smartphones running Android 9 Pie and Android 10. There is no toggle to turn on the dark mode specifically for Instagram. If you want to use it, you have to turn on the system-wide dark mode from system settings. As Android 10 supports system-wide dark mode so enabling it will automatically enable the dark mode for Instagram. However, users running Android 9.0 pie can also try the same method if they have an option to turn on Dark mode system-wide. As some Android OS supports dark mode on Android 9.0 pie, for example, Oxygen OS, MIUI.
