How to enable dark mode on Slack for iOS and Android

Finally you can rest your eyes on a soothing dark background

To turn on dark mode across the whole of macOS Mojave, open up the Apple menu and choose System Preferences. The dark mode was released for beta users but now the service has extended the visually soothing feature to everyone.

That is if you are a beta tester.

It can take from a few minutes to a few hours for Slack to note you've joined the beta, at which point you'll find a new version of Slack available to download.

To enjoy a darker look to Slack, you need to be part of the beta program, and there is nothing from stopping you from signing up right now and reaping the ocular - or just aesthetic - benefits of the new dark mode.

To enable, head to the Settings panel in the app and toggle on the Dark Mode. You may be able to enable Dark Mode already. Finally, Slack app has started testing one of the most requested features, Dark mode. Hopefully, we'll see this feature soon.

The good news about the feature coming to Slack is that it's a pretty easy process to enable.

If you're more bothered by the color of Slack messages than the contents therein, the Slack dark mode was made for you. Facebook has already introduced dark mode for Messenger while WhatsApp too is being on the verge of getting one.

Easier on the eyes, the dark mode is.

According to the tech giant, the "night mode" helps save battery power, as increased brightness and use of certain colors results in more power usage. We believe that dark mode is going to make Slack even better for people who are using it multiple times a day for work.

You can enable YouTube's dark mode on the web (for the current browser only) by clicking your avatar, then Dark theme. If you did all that and don't see it, try restarting app.
