Facebook opted to offer a proper dark mode to Instagram users. Instagram quietly rolled out the feature on both iOS and Android last night.

The setting is an extension of iOS' system-wide dark mode, and Instagram has basically revamped its UI to match the theme. This is great if you switch between themes often but don't like how a certain theme looks in a particular app.

Open the Settings app on your iPhone.

To activate dark mode on an iPhone, users need iOS 13 because the new display option is only accessible through Apple's new settings.

Android 10 users can activate it in a similar way by turning on the dark theme option in the menu settings.

Protests Continue in Ecuador despite State of Exception
Street protests toppled three presidents during economic turmoil in the decade before Correa took power in 2007. Diesel prices have risen from US$1.03 to US$2.30 per gallon, while gasoline went from US$1.85 to US$2.39.

Instagram didn't immediately respond to CNET's request for comment. Once reports started coming that it is being tested in Instagram Alpha, it arrived to the stable app in only two weeks.

You can join the Office Insider program for iOS here to try out the new dark more straight away.

To enable system-wide dark mode on iOS 13 (and thus in Instagram): Go to your Settings app, tap Display & Brightness, and tap the Dark button.

The APK is signed by Google and upgrades your existing app. We did not really notice any issues with it, so this dark mode in the stable version should work perfectly fine. Many other companies made a decision to go with a true dark theme, which may be a better choice for saving extra battery life. After introducing a brand new Threads app and removing one of its most controversial features, Instagram is once again in the spotlight, but for a very different reason.
