Twitter’s Android app gets OLED-friendly dark mode in new alpha build

Back in March, Twitter announced a new OLED-friendly ‘Lights Out’ dark theme for iOS. However, now the new theme is reportedly rolling out to Android as well, albeit only on the alpha version of the app.

The Lights Out mode is different from the existing dark mode on Android, which has a blue/gray theme. The Lights Out mode, however, makes the backdrop of the app pitch dark.

The ‘Lights Out’ mode is different from the current dark mode on Android devices. The ‘Lights Out’ mode turns the UI of the app to pitch black instead of dark blue. This mode does a better job at power consumption on Android smartphones that sport an OLED display.

If you are an alpha user, you will find the option to enable the lights out dark mode under the Settings and privacy > Display and sound > Dark mode appearance menu.

This OLED-friendly dark mode is available for users on alpha version 8.19.0-alpha.03 of Twitter for Android. But, it’s activated through a server-side switch, so replacing the stable version with this one won’t necessarily get you the new dark mode.

That said, some alpha users managed to activate lights out by clearing the app cache, so give it a try and let us know if it worked for you.
