Nowadays, most of the apps that you use come with Dark Mode, be it social media or any other app. Snapchat is one of the most popular social media apps online that doesn’t have a dark mode until now. Some iPhone users do have a dark mode on Snapchat but not all of them.

Snapchat is a popular social media which not only allows you to connect with your friends and family members but also click photos with a filter.

Talking about Android devices, Snapchat hasn’t released the dark more feature for Android devices as of now.
