Twitter on Android gets Auto Dark Mode: Here’s what that means
Auto Dark Mode option enables users to use the same theme in Twitter as they have used in their smartphones’ user interface.
Dark Mode has been a standard feature in Android smartphones as a system-wide feature and in Android apps for years now. Since its launch in 2019, Android app developers have rolled out multiple options for their users giving them more control over their app’s settings. While some apps allow users to pick between light and dark themes, others simply let users follow the system theme set on their Android smartphone. Yet, there are apps that give users the flexibility to pick between manually picking light or dark themes and picking between a system-default theme. Twitter, like countless other apps, has given users the ability to manually pick between light and dark modes for a long time. Now, the company is giving users of its Android app some autonomy by introducing Auto Dark Mode.
As you might have guessed, the newly introduced Auto Dark Mode option enables users to use the same theme in Twitter as they have used in their smartphones’ user interface. This new option stands in addition to the already available Light and Dark modes in Twitter’s Android app.
This piece of important news was shared by Twitter via its official Twitter Support handle on its micro-blogging platform. “We’ve got something for our besties on Android: auto dark mode! When your device is set to dark mode, now you can have your Twitter app match automatically. Tap the icon at the bottom of the sidebar menu and turn on “Use device settings”,” Twitter wrote in a post on its support page.
