Microblogging site Twitter has started rolling out a new dark mode theme called ‘Lights Out’ to Android users six months after it was initially rolled out on iOS in March this year. However, only the alpha version of the Twitter app will get the new feature. The Light Out mode is different than the usual dark theme and works specifically well for smartphones using OLED display. It turns the user interface of the Twitter app to pitch black instead of dark blue/grey in the Dark theme, which helps in saving more battery.

To switch on the Lights Out mode on your Twitter app, go to the Settings and Privacy option on the app, under which you will find the Display and sound button. Clicking on it will show you the dark mode appearance menu, under which you will find two options of ‘Dim’ and ‘Lights Out’ if you are an alpha user. Select ‘Lights Out’ to activate the mode on your device. According to reports, the OLED-friendly dark mode is currently available for users on alpha version 8.19.0-alpha.03 of Twitter for Android.

Though the Lights Out mode has made its way to for a small number of Android users, there is still no information as to when the new pitch-black version of the theme will roll out for all users. We can also expect an automatic Lights Out option which allows users to switch from light to the dark mode theme of their choice according to their timezone. This saves users’ time and energy in modifying the settings of the app separately.
