Night mode for apps isn’t exactly new, and for Twitter users, this feature actually rolled out last year. However some of you guys might have also heard that Twitter was recently testing out an automatic night mode feature where users could set a time in which the app will automatically switch to night mode.

If that is a feature you were looking forward to, you’ll be happy to learn that Twitter for Android has recently gotten an update that will bring that feature to the masses. This comes in Twitter version 7.2, so if you’re running an older version then you’ll definitely need to update your app to get the feature.

For those unfamiliar, automatic night mode lets users choose and set a time where the app will swap between its default mode to night mode. For example you could set it for sunset to turn it on, and sunrise to disable it. It’s not exactly a groundbreaking feature, but it’s one of those quality of life updates that should improve the overall user experience.

Of course ideally it would be better if mobile operating systems were to have a blanket night mode option to users, but since that doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon then we guess this will have to do. Note that this is only for Android but we expect iOS users should get the feature soon enough. In the meantime you can download the latest version of the app from the Google Play Store.
