After a long wait, Instagram seems to have finally begun testing the implementation of the popular Dark Mode. However, it seems that these tests are unique to those who already have Android 10.
The arrival of Android 10 has exponentially increased the implementation of Dark Mode in the most popular applications, thanks to the native support that the new version of Android offers.
Instagram tests reach very few users
Unfortunately, even if you have one of the smartphones that has already received Android 10, it doesn't mean that you will be able to try this new color palette on the social network.
As Android Police has advanced, it is most likely only being made available to a very restricted group of users.
Still, if you already have Android 10 on your smartphone, you'll need to make sure you're already on Instagram version 188.8.131.52.24. Also, in your smartphone settings, you need to enable Dark Mode (at a general level).
Instagram will receive a 'Friend' Dark Mode from AMOLED screens
Unlike many applications, the social network belonging to Facebook will adopt a "pure" Dark Mode. That is, the new color palette will be predominantly black, allowing AMOLED displays to save on battery consumption.
As we can see from the published screenshots, even the contrast tones (in blue) are quite discreet. In the bottom navigation bar, all icons are light gray.
There is no information yet on when Dark Mode will be available to all users, but it may not take much longer.
