Dark mode is an increasingly popular feature in many apps. Dark mode provides a color scheme that focuses on much darker colors that are normally used. This change is great to reduce the glare from your screen when using it in the dark, it also helps to reduce your battery usage if you have an OLED or AMOLED screen.
Tip: OLED and AMOLED screens use minimal power when displaying dark colors, especially black because the pixels themselves are the source of the light. On a traditional LCD screen, the pixels merely color the light from a backlight. This backlight isn’t turned off or down, even when trying to display a black image, meaning that the majority of the power usage remains constant.
To enable dark mode in the Brave browser, you need to open the in-app settings by tapping the triple-dot icon in the bottom-right corner, then tapping “Settings” in the menu.
In the settings list, you need to tap on “Appearance” in the “Display” subsection.
In the appearance settings, tap on “Themes” to open the dark mode settings.
By default, Brave honours your system theme setting. So, if you’ve enabled dark mode system-wide, then Brave will match that. Conversely, if you’ve got a light theme enabled system-wide, Brave will use its light theme too. You can, however, override the theme setting by manually choosing between the light and dark themes. The change will instantly apply with no app restart required.
