After Twitter, YouTube and Facebook Messenger Instagram is now the turn to integrate a dark fashion. The dark mode prevents you from staring at a bright display in dark surroundings and thus relaxes your eyes. If you have an AMOLED display, you will even save some battery power.
The Dark Mode in Instagram is available on iOS 13, Android 10, but also on smartphones with Android 9 Pie.
