The apps may be dark now, but the memes they have inspired are nothing but lit. Instagram, Twitter and YouTube are among the social media apps that have introduced a 'dark mode' over the last few months. Instagram was the latest to roll out this feature, which allows users to update the usual white background to a darker shade. According to Tech Ahead, using apps on dark mode conserves the phone's battery and also reduces eye strain in low light conditions. While they sound like worthy advantages, it hasn't stopped the Internet from creating memes on the dark mode feature.
While some have complained about too much darkness and eye fatigue, others have just cracked jokes. Some explained, through GIFs and pictures, how switching from dark mode to regular felt like. Take a look at some of the funniest dark mode memes on Twitter:

The new dark mode feature in Instagram works on both Android and iOS apps. However, it will only run on iOS 13 or Android 10 and higher. This has led to some sad reactions from people who can't access the feature yet.

Users will need to switch to the system-wide dark mode setting on their smartphone to use this feature. As of now, there is no way to toggle between dark and regular mode inside the Instagram app.
