twitter_nightmode

Some Twitter users are reporting that one of the new features they’re seeing in the brand-new Material Design layout for the official Twitter app is the inclusion of a Night mode toggle, as shown above.

Ausdroid reader Dev Sharma¬†tipped us off to this earlier (thanks, Dev), and while we’ve tried to replicate it on our own devices, we’ve done so unsuccessfully. So, thanks to Dev, you can take a look at how the new Night Mode looks in a few screengrabs he’s sent us:

The option to access Night Mode appears to be a server side switch; none of our accounts seem to have received it, and yet we’re seeing a few reports of it around the Twitter-verse from users with the same app version that we’re using (Android Police are reporting the same findings).

It’ll probably roll out to more users soon, and it’ll be a welcome improvement; using Twitter in the dark (with its bright, crisp whites) can leave you somewhat blind, so a night mode will definitely help.

Let us know if you’ve received the option to enable Night Mode in your official Twitter app!

I have night mode looks very nice, be great if you could add to the Ausdroid app, also the app doesn’t seem to refresh when opening have to do manually.
