With the introduction of the new system-wide dark mode feature in Android 10, most of the Google apps are already respecting that. But the other apps are yet to catch the “include the dark-mode feature” race. However, some of the apps are already to support the dark-mode and among that Instagram is one of the first ones as they have been recently beta testing out the dark-mode feature on Android.
The Dark Mode on Instagram is a pitch-black dark-theme (perfect for AMOLED screens) which means that the background is completely black rather than the shades of grey. The dark-mode update isn’t perfect yet and still needs some work, which should be improved and resolved over the updates! The dark mode is already working on the devices that are running on Android 10. However, as some reports, the devices running on custom skin like Samsung’s OneUI (based on Android 9.0) are also supporting dark mode on Instagram.
