Do you find your Twitch app too bright for your liking? Do you want to use another theme for the web client and mobile app that’s more pleasing to the eyes? If so, you can use the dark mode feature on the app. Follow our guide below, and we’ll show you how.


Twitch is the most famous stream service used by the gaming community. It has millions of users all around the world who are constantly watching or streaming content. Besides, most pro-gamers use Twitch to stream their game sessions, which is one of the main reasons for its popularity.

You will find content about any game that you could think of. Raging from The Sims, Age of Empires, and Valorant, Twitch has them all. So if you are passionate about games, insights, and news, you’ll find Twitch as a great streaming platform. You can even try to be a streamer yourself!

However, sitting too many hours in front of the PC can be exhausting. Your back will be sore, and your eyes will hurt, especially if you play at night. Thankfully, Twitch developers created dark mode. It is like any other dark mode out there, just that this time you have it on Twitch.

How to use dark mode on Twitch

The dark mode is becoming more and more popular around all apps as people are starting to use it whether it’s nighttime or not. Usually, activating this feature is pretty simple, as you will see in just our guide below.

You can use dark mode on Twitch whether you’re using the app on your phone or desktop. Check our tutorials below for the steps on both devices.

On your computer:

  1. Open the Twitch desktop or web app and sign in to your account.
  2. Click your profile icon on the top right corner of the screen and toggle the “Dark mode” button.

As you can see, the new theme is more eye-friendly. In addition, it is less bright, which means that you can game and watch Twitch late at night without disturbing anyone or without nobody noticing it.

On the Twitch app for Android:

  1. Tap your profile icon on the top left corner of the app.

  2. Open your Account Settings and head to Preferences.

  3. Toggle the “Enable Dark Mode” option at the top of the page.

Changing from the light to the dark theme could be an aesthetic thing. Some people don’t like to see a balance between the light and the dark on their Twitch interface, while others find it too bright for their liking.
