Social media platforms changed our way of living. Platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Reddit are so popular and available for almost all smart devices. In smartphones and PCs, you have the option to toggle between light mode and dark mode. In Reddit, you can enable the dark mode both in the smartphone app and website.

Reddit Dark Mode: Not Working
If you have an old version of the Reddit app, dark mode won’t be enabled. Update the Reddit app from the Play Store or App Store. For the website, restart the browser and try again.
In the old Reddit, night mode is not significant. You have to activate the Gold theme to get the dark mode. But in the Gold theme too, you will experience glitters and performance issues. Seeing this, Reddit officially added the Night mode feature in both website and app.
In the Reddit app, the Crescent icon won’t be available on the bottom. If that’s the case, go to Settings –> Dark Mode. Turn off the Auto Dark Mode toggle. Now, you can enable the night mode on the Reddit app.
