Slack's desktop apps get dark mode options

Slack's desktop apps get dark mode options The dark mode trend looks like it's here to stay, with more and more companies introducing black color schemes for their apps. The latest feature in Slack for desktop is support for dark mode to save your eyes when you're burning the midnight oil. If you haven't already tweaked the app yourself, dedicated dark mode themes are now available on Slack's Mac, Windows and Linux desktop clients. They join the Android and iOS mobile apps where it was already a feature. You can either apply various dark mode sidebar variants, or try the new "Nocturne" dark mode theme, which is now even darker.

Will dark mode automatically work with all my apps?

Dark mode will work with systemwide apps on your iPhone, including Messages, Safari, the camera and photo gallery, the calendar, internal menus and Maps. Every app that Apple controls itself should support Dark Mode. However, third-party apps might not all work with dark mode immediately.

As with dark mode in Android 10, it's possible that iPhone apps that don't have a dedicated night mode or dark theme can get in on the feature automatically when you turn on dark mode in the settings, by inverting the colors.

Will it work for iPad?

For the first time ever, this year's iOS release won't power the iPad. Instead, Apple broke off iPadOS, a dedicated version of its operating system to work with the iPad's signature tablet features. However, iPadOS is based on iOS and will also feature systemwide dark mode.

Why is Apple using dark mode now?

Dark themes have certainly been around for years as third-party apps and themes. Unlike Google, Apple didn't say why it's looking into dark mode, though we're sure high demand was certainly part of it.

Apple doesn't have a track record of being terribly concerned about trends, often bringing out features years after competitors. It's always been much more concerned about getting things right than getting them first. It's also possible that Apple used MacOS Mojave as a test bed before moving on to the highly scrutinized iOS.

Apple didn't respond to a request for comment.
