It’s still unacceptable that popular social app like Snapchat doesn’t have an official Dark Mode setting for Android Phones. Earlier this week, Snapchat rolled out a new update for iOS and iPadOS users that includes official Dark Mode settings. We’re hoping the Android users are soon enjoying the Dark Mode, without tweaking or downloading any other applications to run Dark Mode. In short, the Snapchat Dark Mode for Android phones is under development and could be released real soon. In the recent article by XDA, they’ve shown an easy way to use the Snapchat Dark Mode on Samsung, Google Pixel, OnePlus, or any Android phone, even though the Snapchat dark mode for Android is under development.
However, the only and biggest downside of trying this hack are, that you would need to ROOT the device, without rooting the Android phone, this trick won’t work. The Preference Manager, which plays a major role to turn on Dark Mode in Snapchat, needs your device’s root access and that is only possible if your phone is rooted or you’re willing to root. Rooting the phone is not advisable, as it clearly voids the warranty, and could unstable the phone or create other problems for you.
