Kindle is a good companion for anyone who likes to read and wants to have a choice of having to choose from multiple books at the same time. Even though Kindle’s screen is a bit different than the one on tablet, it can still hurt your eyes during heavy reading at night. Kindle, however, gives you an option to ease your eyes and activate Kindle dark mode which will swap the colours on your screen.
Kindle makes for a great e-book reader when compared to traditional tablets. But when you’re trying to read at night, the sharp white background light can be a problem for your eyes. Relieve your eyes using dark mode on Kindle.
There used to be an ccessibility setting called Inverted Mode in Kindle e-readers before, but Amazon now provides a quick toggle to change the text appearance.
The dark mode is currently supported on Kindle Paperwhite 4 (2018), Oasis 2 (2017) and newer. If you can’t see the feature yet, make sure you are connected to your Wi-Fi and that your Kindle is updated to version 5.12.4 or higher.
How to turn the dark mode on Kindle?
There are only a few easy steps to follow to turn the Dark mode on your Kindle as its conveniently available in Kindle’s Settings.
Go to your Kindle’s home screen and select settings from the top toolbar.
If you are in the middle of reading a book, you can tap on the top bar with time to reveal the toolbar and tap on the settings button.
You will find the Dark mode toggle right after the settings open, as well as the brightness level slider.
To switch back from the dark mode simply repeat the steps.
