Slack Testing Dark Mode on iOS & Android Apps

Slack Testing Dark Mode on iOS & Android Apps”

Slack added the "darker, higher-contrast theme" option to its iOS and Android apps Monday, so checking out your work messages on the move won't be quite so bright.

In order to activate the so-called "goth look" on an iPhone, the users should "General" in the Settings app, then tap "Accessibility" and 'Display Accommodations'.

Note: It can potentially take a few hours between when you sign up and when you'll actually be admitted to the program.

9to5Mac spotted Slack updates for the iOS and Android, noting that the feature is now being tested, and helpfully points out how to activate it for yourself. The update is now rolling out to the beta users so you will have to enrol in the beta program or wait for the feature to make it to the public app.

The dark mode toggle is under the main system settings. The app will restart in order to apply the dark mode.

Slack's dark mode feature has a dark grey color for the feature, instead of true black that is used in the dark mode of other apps. The feature is applied to most parts of the app, including headers, pop-ups, and menus, however, it doesn't affect the color palettes of the app. Facebook has already introduced dark mode for Messenger while WhatsApp too is being on the verge of getting one.

As you probably know, dark mode has become one of the most requested features for almost every app on both iOS and Android.

Easier on the eyes, the dark mode is. Along with being easier on the ol' peepers, this should also prove beneficial to your device's battery life.

There are so many tools and features in Slack that can help make you a more productive team member and many ways to maximize the use of the app. Once you have tried the new dark mode in Slack for yourself, we want to know what you think about it.
