How to activate Instagram dark mode

Dark mode is an option that is coming to more and more applications. Present natively since the release of Android 10, this is not the case for older versions of Android but apps still offer functionality. Instagram is the latest app that takes the leap into integrating this dark fashion for everyone.

After Twitter, YouTube or Messenger, it's Instagram's turn to offer this functionality that is highly praised by users. The dark mode notably allows you to enjoy a less bright environment during the nightfall and thus rest your eyes more. If you have a smartphone with AMOLED display, this also saves a little energy.

The dark mode deployed by Instagram is therefore available on iOS 13, Android 10 but also on smartphones running Android 9 Pie.
