Dark Mode

AMBOSS now supports Dark Mode for our desktop platform and our Knowledge App

You can activate Dark Mode on the desktop platform by selecting your Profile icon in the top-right of the screen, where you will see the Appearance option. There, you will see three options: Light, Dark, and System


  • System will make the app appearance follow the system preferences of your device (e.g., if you set your device to Dark in the system settings, the AMBOSS platform will automatically follow these settings).
  • Light will keep your AMBOSS app in light mode.
  • Dark will keep your AMBOSS app in dark mode.

Please note, even if you are using it for the rest of the platform, Dark Mode will not be automatically toggled on for Qbank sessions set to Exam Mode. To switch to Dark Mode for a Qbank session in Exam Mode, click on the Reverse Color symbol in the top right corner. This will automatically switch the screen to dark for you!


To activate Dark Mode within our Knowledge App, please follow the steps below:
1. Tap on the Settings icon in the bottom right corner when on the Knowledge App


2. Select Appearance


3. Choose between System, Light, or Dark. The System setting is only available for Android 10 and above.

*** If you have our latest app version but do not see the Dark Mode option in Settings, please head to the Settings overview page and make sure the Library is updated. If you're still unable to access this mode, please reach out to our Support team via the icon on the top right corner of this screen.
