Like many other websites and apps, Twitch has a dark mode too. Some people find it helps reduce the strain on their eyes, and some just find the dark theme beautiful. Whatever the reason, you should know that it’s easy to turn dark mode on and off on Twitch.
You can do this both on your mobile device and while using the website in your web browser on a PC. All you need to do to enable a dark theme on the Twitch website is to toggle on only one switch. In turn, on your mobile device, you will need to perform several steps.
Well, let’s take a closer look at how to do it.
How to turn on and off dark mode on the Twitch website
If you want to turn on dark mode on the Twitch website, you can follow these steps:
- First, open the web browser and go to the Twitch website.
- After that, click on your profile icon and enable the Dark Theme option.
Once you have completed these steps, you will immediately turn on dark mode. You don’t even have to reload the web page. The setting will be applied automatically.
How to turn on and off dark mode on the Twitch mobile app
If you’re using Twitch on your mobile device, there’s also an option to enable dark mode. Often it automatically activates if you already have a dark mode on your smartphone. However, if the Twitch app still has a light theme, here’s how to change that:
- Open Twitch on your mobile device.
- Then tap on your profile icon at the top left corner of the screen.
- After that, go to Settings.
- Now, select Preferences.
- Tap Appearance.
- Finally, enable Dark Theme.
If you want to make Twitch’s dark theme be tied to your smartphone’s overall setup and turn on automatically at certain times, you can enable the Match System Theme option.

What colors does the dark theme on Twitch consist of?
The background color of the dark theme is black, and the buttons can be light gray or purple, depending on whether you are using the Twitch site or the app. Unfortunately, you can’t change the Twitch colors to suit your preferences. The colors are fixed, so you can only choose between light and dark modes.
Perhaps the Twitch developers will add such a feature at some point. However, judging by the fact that they have stopped supporting the Twitch app on PC, it is unlikely that such a feature will appear any time soon.
You can use Twitch via a browser on any smartphone or PC, as well as in apps for Android, iOS, Fire TV, and even game consoles such as PlayStation 4/5. To enable or disable dark mode, always go to your profile settings and switch the mode as you see fit, whether in the browser or in the app.
