Twitter’s new "Lights out" option is its true dark mode


The company has just tweeted announcing that its dark mode will now have a proper black background, and it's calling it "lights out". That has finally arrived. True Twitter dark mode is rolling out today, called Lights Out. "Dim" is the current Dark Mode theme, while "Lights Out" is a new pure black colour palette that emits no light. Although the feature was available since 2016, the enhanced version of the dark mode is more user-friendly and allows phones with OLED screens to save more battery.

While this is rolling out to iOS today, Twitter told Engadget that it'll be making its way to Android and the web "soon". If it has hit your devices, we suggest checking the "sound and display" option under the "Settings" menu provided in the app.

Twitter's new dark mode will be more pleasing and will save more battery life of your device.

To recall, Twitter for Android already has the dark mode feature going by the name Night mode. Even though Twitter had it for a couple of years now, it was not black, which meant no advantage for OLED panels.

Dark or night modes are trending these days. Select the latter to get a black background. Recent reports suggested that dark mode is also coming to Google Keep (aka Keep Notes), while it remains to be seen if the same will happen with Gmail.

A few weeks ago, Twitter was reported to be working on a "subscribe to conversation" feature that would let users follow a thread without being involved in it in any way.
