Staring at a screen can become a bit strenuous, especially at night. Enabling Dark Mode can help alleviate the strain of reading in the dark. 

At this time, there is not a dark mode setting within the Scribd app itself. This is a feature you can toggle on and off within your device’s internal settings. The setting you have selected on your device will be applied accordingly, directly within the Scribd app. 

While you have Dark Mode enabled on your device, you may experience inverted image colors on unsupported book formats such as graphic novels or PDF documents. 

Follow the instructions below to enable Dark Mode on your iOS or Android device.

Dark mode for iOS devices

To turn on the Dark Mode setting for your device, follow these steps:

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap Display & Brightness
  • Select Dark to turn on Dark Mode

You can also access Dark Mode from Control Center. 

  • Open Control Center
  • Tap the Dark Mode button to turn it on or off 

For more information on using Dark Mode, check out this Apple Support article.

Dark mode for Android

To turn on the Dark Theme setting for your device, follow these steps:

Android OS 10

  • Go into your device’s Settings
  • Tap Display
  • Tap on the toggle switch next to Dark Theme to enable

Android OS 9.0

  • Go into your device’s Settings
  • Tap Display
  • Tap Advanced to expand the list of options
  • Scroll down and tap Device Theme
  • Tap Dark when the option appears

Please keep in mind, when you have dark mode enabled within your device, you will also see it applied to other apps you have installed. If this is something you would rather avoid, we’ve also implemented Themes within our ebook and audiobook readers. 

Themes

In addition to Dark Mode, you can customize your reading experience with Themes located directly in the app. Themes are pre-set combinations of page and text colors that can be applied to our ebooks. When you have theme options applied, menus and PDF documents will not be impacted. 

To access Themes while you’re reading or listening to a title within the Scribd mobile app, follow these steps:

  • Tap the “Aa” icon to your upper right 
    • This will allow you to open your reader’s Display Menu
  • Toward the bottom of the Display Menu, above Brightness, you should see the option for Theme

There will be several color scheme options for the overall color scheme of your reader’s pages, ranging from bright white to pitch black.

If you have any questions or need assistance with the Dark Mode feature or Themes on your device, please contact Scribd Support directly. Happy reading!
