Twitter introduces 'true' dark mode to its Android app

Way back in 2016, Twitter introduced a night mode exclusively to its Android app. The option was designed to go easy on the eyes in low light and featured dark grayish-blue backgrounds and overall theme. As per today's dark mode standards, it wasn't a true blue 'dark' mode.

Earlier this year, the San Francisco-based social media company came up with a proper, darker shade of the previously released night mode to its iOS app. The feature was duly christened the 'Lights Out' option and transformed the background and accents to darker shades - perfect for midnight browsing. Today saw the release of the 'Lights Out' feature for Android users.

Once updated to the latest version of the Twitter app, Android users will be able to switch to the brand new completely blacked out dark mode. The feature is easily accessible and can be toggled by pressing the blue light bulb icon on the sidebar or through the display settings. Additionally, users can also opt to choose an automatic option which will switch the dark mode on at sunset and off at sunrise automatically.
