How to Enable Dark Mode in Instagram Threads

The Instagram Threads app is certainly lacking a couple of important features. However, one of the things most users are trying to find within the app is an option to enable dark mode. While it might seem like Meta simply forgot to implement a dark mode in the Threads app, there’s actually a really easy way to enable dark mode in Threads.

Get Threads Dark Mode on iOS and Android

Though there’s no option within the Threads app settings to toggle dark mode, you can enable dark mode using the method below.

Note: We have showcased the steps using a Pixel 7a, but the basic steps will be the same on other smartphones as well.

Use Threads in Dark Mode on Web

Threads doesn’t currently have a full-blown web app, and the only way you can use it on the web is to directly head to a user’s profile on your browser, such as the Beebom profile on Threads. However, if you are browsing Threads on the web you can toggle dark mode there as well.

All you have to do is click on the Threads logo at the top of the page, and it will toggle between dark mode and light mode, so you can easily choose which theme you like best.
