Twitter unveils dark mode update for users

The dark blue color palette will then be renamed as the "Dim" dark mode. Rather than having to go through Settings each time you want to switch it on and off, you can also tap on the light bulb to click over to Dark Mode. The new "black-coloured" dark mode option called Lights Out is now rolling out for iOS users.

Twitter released a new iOS update on Thursday with a new "Lights Out" feature which makes the existing blue-grey dark mode option, even more darker. Twitter has told Engadget that the night mode will be coming to the Twitter app on Android as well as to the web version "soon".

The micro-blogging website Twitter has announced that it is rolling out a new update for the iOS users. Given how long it takes Twitter to implement dark mode features across platforms, that might take quite a while. Furthermore, Twitter has also finally rolled out the automatic dark mode switch for iOS users, something that was already rolled out to Android users two years ago.

That's because the way OLED panels work is that individual pixels are turned off when displaying black, unlike LCDs. Select the latter to get a black background. In its tweet, the official Twitter account said that the new mode was in line with demands of users, who wanted a darker mode.

Twitter says that the mode can potentially help with saving, Fortune reported.
