How To Change Reddit Theme

Redesign your Reddit appearance by swapping from one theme to the next. But how can you do that?

Quick Answer

Reddit lets users view their Reddit on a white or black background. The settings allow one to swap from a white to a black theme or a black to white. Go to Reddit and change the appearance via the “View Options” section. Use the white background during the day and swap to night mode if you’re a night awk.  

You’re in the right place if you want to learn how to use different Reddit themes. The article will address the steps to switching from one color display to another. 

Reddit Themes

Captivating stories and comments on Reddit keep us up past midnight.

Although it’s interesting to mindlessly scroll through these stories and get a laugh or two, the whiteness emanating from our screens makes the scrolling unbearable.

Reddit did not design Reddit’s default display for nighttime scrolling. 

Fortunately, you can swap to an eye-friendly theme as the sun sets or rises. 

How To Turn Your Reddit Black?  

Our screens are part of our lives. We stare at them first thing in the morning and right before catching a zizz. Most smartphone owners spend more than six hours staring at texts or images on their screens.

That’s why we see an increasing preference for dark mode

The fondness has also trickled down to Reddit. Reddit is gradually shifting from a white background to a dark one as more and more Redditors switch on the “Dark Mode” option. 

You can join the wagon by switching to black Reddit. Here is how to swap your Reddit display from white to black on different devices.

On the Mobile App

To switch Reddit black on the mobile app, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Reddit app on your mobile device.
  2. Tap on your Avatar in the top right corner.
  3. Select “Settings.”
  4. Scroll to the “Dark Mode” section.
  5. Turn on the “Dark Mode” toggle.

Reddit offers two different dark theme options: “Midnight (AMOLED)” and “Night.” The “AMOLED” theme is darker than the “Night” theme. It’s pitch black.

To change the dark theme, follow these steps:

  1. Tap on the “Dark theme” button. 
  2. A small menu with “Night” and “Midnight (AMOLED)” options will appear. Pick your preferred theme.

On the Browser Version

Follow these steps to switch Reddit black on the desktop version:

  1. Navigate to Reddit on your favorite browser. 
  2. Click the downward arrow beside your username in the top right corner.
  3. Turn on the “Dark Mode” option in the “View Options” section.

You’ll notice a comfortable browsing experience once you turn on the dark mode. You can always go back to the light theme anytime you wish.

Adding Shades of Mint to Reddit

Apart from the white, default red, and black colors on Reddit, you can add splashes of mint-green to your Reddit. Reddit allows you to switch your Reddit icon and button to minty green.

But you can only do this via the app. Here is how to introduce minty green to your Reddit:

  1. Launch the Reddit app on your mobile device.
  2. Tap your Avatar in the top right corner. 
  3. Tap on the “Settings” button. 
  4. Scroll to the “Dark Mode” section and select “Light theme.”
  5. Tap on the “Mint” option.

Pinkish Reddit

A pinkish Reddit is visually pleasing. Turn Reddit into a garden of pink letters and icons from the “Light theme” option. Here is how to unleash the beauty of a pinkish Reddit:

  1. Open the Reddit app on your smartphone.
  2. Tap your Avatar in the top right corner. 
  3. Tap the “Settings” button. 
  4. Go to the “Dark Mode” section and tap the “Light theme” button. 
  5. Tap on the “Pony” option. 

When you access your Reddit via the browser, you’ll observe that you don’t have a “Light Theme” button nor a way to activate the “Pony” theme.

Swap to a Green Reddit

Watch everything turn green as you scroll through your Reddit feed. You can only do this via your Reddit app. The browser version has no color variation.

To see the green texts and buttons, follow these steps:

  1. Open Reddit on your mobile device.
  2. Click your Avatar in the top right corner. 
  3. Tap the “Settings” button. 
  4. Go to the “Dark Mode” section and select the “Light theme” option. 
  5. Select the “Trees” option. 

 Final Words 

You can always swap to your preferred color if your eyes cannot endure black and white on Reddit feed. Reddit lets you add mint, pink, green, and a dark mode to your Reddit.

While mint, pink, and green beautify your Reddit, a black Reddit lessen eye fatigue as you scroll through enthralling stories on the platform.

Your Reddit app gives more theme options than the web version. The steps above will always help you to change to a theme that pleases your eyes. 


Will my Reddit automatically switch to “Dark Mode” if I turn on “Dark Mode” on my browser?

No, the “Dark Mode” settings activate the black-on-white background on your browser’s display page. Individual websites will retain the white-on-black text theme. You’ll have to turn on the “Dark Mode” on your Reddit account to enjoy a Dark Reddit. 

Can I change my font style on Reddit?

You’ll need to use your device’s settings to change the font style on Reddit. As of now, Reddit doesn’t offer an official procedure to change your font style.
