This tool began to be available in some cases, as found by the site The Verge. Dark mode is already available, a month ago, for the desktop version. It is now known that tests were started on the mobile version for some selected profiles. It could soon reach the rest of the users, although there are no confirmations about it.It should be remembered that there are many other apps that already have dark mode, such as Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger, all of which belong to Facebook. Twitter also offers this alternative, both for iOS and Android operating systems. One of the benefits of dark mode is that it allows you to save on battery consumption. It should be noted that this saving is significant only in the case of OLED screens, because displays of this type are capable of illuminating each pixel independently, but this does not happen with LCDs.

In this sense, limiting exposure to artificial light, especially the blue light emitted by screens before going to sleep, is beneficial, however, a study by researchers at the University of Manchester concludes that blue light does not appear to be Being as detrimental to our sleep patterns as previously believed. According to these specialists, the use of dim lights and cool shades at night, as well as resorting to warmer lights in the day can be more beneficial to our health. Experts reflect that the sunset is darker and blue than daylight. Beyond this, it should be noted that there are investigations that ensure that the use of electronic devices affects sleep regardless of whether they are used in the dark mode or not, because It’s an equal light boost MORE ABOUT THIS THEME: How to turn on dark mode on Instagram iPhone 12 won’t include charger in box Research revealed that Instagram prioritizes photos of scantily clad users
