Twitter now has a Night Mode feature that could soon come to desktops and laptops. The feature is currently in the testing phase. Last year, Twitter rolled out the much-anticipated night mode feature to its mobile app, starting with Android and eventually bringing it to its iOS app. The feature primarily supports darker hues to make it easier to scan the feed and read tweets in settings with low light.
If you are one of those who shares few tweets on Twitter before hitting bed, the Night Mode feature is a welcome feature. Though it is not officially announced, a few users have already got hands-on experience. To check if you are among the lucky ones, click on your profile image on the top right to see if you have access. If not, you can expect it sometime soon, because it looks like Twitter is rolling it out in phases.
Night Mode lets the user tweet in low light conditions by changing the colour from white to navy, a more readable mode in low lighting. Once the feature is activated, it transforms the look of the Twitter app from white to navy, and changes text color for tweets from black to white.
WhatsApp iOS users got the Night Mode feature a couple of months ago. WhatsApp, one of the largest messaging services with over 1.2 billion users, has added Night Mode to its in-app camera. The feature lets the user capture images in low light settings. This comes as an advantage over its rivals, offering masks, filters, 3D effects and more for their in-app camera.
If you haven’t gotten Night Mode on your Twitter desktop web app yet, it could be just a matter of time.
