How do I enable/disable dark mode?

Dark mode (or night mode) lowers display brightness, so you can enjoy learning on Duolingo in different lighting conditions. Currently, we have dark mode available for all iOS users. Dark mode is in development for Android users, we hope to launch it on Android. Stay tuned!

 

Enabling dark mode

1. Open iOS Settings app

2. Tap 'Display & Brightness'

3. Tap the 'Dark' option

4. If Duolingo app is already open, hard-close the app and reopen it. Your app will then be in dark mode!

 

Disabling dark mode

1. Open iOS Settings app

2. Tap 'Display & Brightness'

3. Tap the 'Light' option

4. Hard-close and reopen Duolingo app. App will return to standard/light mode. 

 

NOTE: Dark Mode on Duolingo is contingent on your device's display settings. If you adjust your device's display to 'dark', it will affect all apps that enable dark mode.
