How to Enable Dark Mode on Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 / Note 8 Pro

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro users can activate dark mode directly through stock firmware using this guide. Dark theme apps and gray backgrounds have really caught traction over the last few years. More so, Google has started to integrate dark mode within stock Android 10 UI as well as within their stock apps. Despite running Android Pie (MIUI 10), Xiaomi has integrated its own Dark Theme which users can enable to invert whites into blacks across the system. Further, this toggle works with some apps as well which automatically go dark after enabling.

MIUI has always been about customization. Xiaomi allows users to setup phones according to their preferences. Building on that, the brand has been one of the few to deploy a system-wide dark mode before Android 10. To enable it, you don’t need any modification or installation, just the exact procedure to find the setting. Our guide will listing the complete process along with screenshots on how to enable dark mode on Redmi Note 8 as well as Redmi Note 8 Pro right ahead.

How to Enable Dark Mode – Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 / Redmi Note 8 Pro

Before we begin, we would like to point out once again that this process does not require any modification or installation. Rather, it explains how to find the built-in toggle that can activate or deactivate system dark mode on Redmi Note 8 series.

This toggle has been seen effecting other apps as well such as Play Store which is a big plus as this feature is otherwise only for Android 10.

Step 1 – Open up the Settings app.

Step 2 – Find the Display option and then tap on it.

Step 3 – From the next menu, you should see the Dark Mode toggle. Tap it to activate.

That’s all to it! You should now see a more darkened UI. Where there were previously white backgrounds, they should now all turn to black / gray.

Definitely a great option to have built-in! Darker UI yields less strain to your eyes and also has shown to improve battery life as well.
