How to Turn on Dark Mode on Instagram Pinterest and YouTube

Wants to know how to enable dark mode on your favorite social sites? In recent posts, we explained the process for Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and Messenger. 

Instagram and Pinterest are the most popular social media sites to share photos and blog images. YouTube is our favorite place to watch movies and videos. Here’s how to enable dark theme on these websites. 

Instagram Dark Mode

Unlike Facebook and Twitter, Instagram doesn’t have a dark mode option by default. To enable Instagram dark mode, you should have a smartphone running iOS 13 or Android 10 or higher. 

Instagram Dark Mode on iOS

Open Settings on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Choose Display & Brightness. 

It will show two themes- light and dark. 

iPhone dark mode

Choose the dark theme and it will be applied to your device instantly. If you want to enable dark mode at a particular time or at sunset, drag the ‘Automatic’ toggle button to right. Click Options to set a schedule. 

The new changes will affect all apps that support iOS dark theme feature. Open Instagram and experience the beauty of darkness. 

Instagram Dark Mode on Android

Tap Settings from the App drawer and scroll down to locate ‘Accessibility’ settings.

Select the Dark theme from the Display section. It applies to the entire system including apps and others except for videos. Color inversion is a similar option to exchange color values from black to white and vice versa. 

Android 9 or earlier version users will have just color inversion option but not the dark theme.
