The Android app will require you to restart the app before you can allow the dark mode. There's also an official Enable Night Mode option available on the app menu for Firefox on iOS, but not as yet for Android (you can still install third-party dark themes on Firefox for Android). The workplace collaboration app is now rolling out the dark mode feature for Android and iOS beta testers. With Slack you just have to head into the app settings once you have updated to the latest beta version. First, you'll have to join Slack's beta program.

After getting admitted to the program, for initiating the beta program, you need to update the app. A user can join by heading over to the app's settings, and select the "Join Beta" section, which prompts them to provide your name and e-mail address. From there you can toggle the feature off and on. Once you have tried the new dark mode in Slack for yourself, we want to know what you think about it.

With this update, the dark mode will dominate this year.

Screenshots on Twitter show what Slack's dark mode looks on iOS devices, and it's. well, it's looking real dark. That apart, dark mode is also pleasing on the eyes as well and is known to cause less strain. You can do so by going here for iOS, and here for Android.

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. A lot of other apps have made dark mode easy to access especially lately with dark mode becoming a highly-requested feature. But why not darken your apps where you can in the meantime?
