Amazon app Night Mode for Android

An important note before you try to enable Amazon dark mode is that your Android smartphone needs to be running on Android 10 or above for the steps to work.

  1. On your Android, open ‘Settings’, and from the list of options, tap on ‘Display’.
  2. Find the ‘Dark Mode’ feature, and either select or toggle the button next to it.

Note: Launch the Amazon app after, and check if you’ve turned on dark mode in the app too. If the app UI is still in light mode, you can either close and reopen the app or restart your phone. In addition, some Android models might have the feature labeled ‘Dark Theme’.


Amazon Dark Mode on iOS devices

Unfortunately, switching to dark mode does not work for the Amazon app on iOS devices.

Additionally, iOS users used to be able to switch between dark/light mode using Safari’s built-in web browser ‘Reader’ mode. However, this feature is no longer available on the Amazon app, and the bad news is that there’s no way to switch to dark mode for Amazon’s app or website if you’re an iOS user.

However, if you decide to switch to your laptop/computer, and you’re a Google Chrome user, we have a solution.

If you’re using Google Chrome, we’re sure you’re familiar with the Chrome web store, where you can find numerous extensions that you can add to Chrome.

Follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Chrome on your PC/laptop.
  2. Search for ‘Chrome Web Store’, and in the ‘Search’ field, type in Dark Reader Extension’.
  3. Click on the ‘Add to Chrome’ button.
  4. Launch the Amazon website after, and check if the dark mode has switched. If not, close Google Chrome, and reopen it again.

Note: There are multiple available extensions on the Chrome Web Store. One of them is ‘Night Eye Extension’.
