Unfortunately, users of Slack's desktop app will have to keep waiting for their own night mode, as this particular update is exclusive to mobile users for the time being. First, you'll have to join Slack's beta program. Dark mode is available on both iOS and Android. That means the feature is available though only for the beta testers. So, if you want to get Dark Mode right now, you will need to enter the Beta program.

On iOS, you'll find the option under settings (the bottom option after you swipe left within the app) - use the dark mode toggle to make things a little moodier.

It is a welcome feature, especially if you are using Slack throughout the day during the work week. 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.

Whatever be the reason, the good news is that a host of other popular apps have either joined the bandwagon or are in the process of doing so.

You've got a few options when it comes to controlling dark mode in individual Apple apps for macOS too.

That includes the markedly less battery drain that dark mode causes.

We can't go through every single app for Android and iOS with a dark mode, but those are the main ones. For iOS users, the app will automatically switch to dark mode interface after toggling it on. White backgrounds are a huge battery hog and for people with weaker devices it's even worse.

You can enable dark mode on Windows 10 by clicking the cog icon on the Start menu, then choosing Personalisation, Colours, and then Dark from the drop-down menu at the top.
