Even other popular applications including WhatsApp are planning to soon bring Dark Mode feature. It is more comfortable than the blinding white mode.

The dark mode isn't officially a part of the apps use yet, and instead is now available exclusively to members of Slack's beta testing program.

As noted above, the feature is now limited to just the beta users. 9to5Mac also reveals how to enable it for yourself.

If you have signed up as a beta tester for Slack, you should notice the new dark mode feature right now. Once you tap it, you need to provide your email address and name. What else would you like to see Slack offer in the iOS and Android apps in the future?

Toyota now manufactures the Camry, Avalon, Lexus ES 350, Camry hybrid and Avalon hybrid at the Georgetown facility. Toyota's total West Virginia investment represents $1.4 billion and 1,600 jobs, according to Manchin's office.

As of right now, dark mode can only be enabled manually with no option to have it automatically turn on/off at certain times of day. On Android, there's an extra General screen to tap into before you find the toggle switch. You'll see there's another option, Use my Windows mode, which follows whatever the current Windows OS setting is.

The beta version app is only available on official Nova Launcher website and the APK file can be downloaded via third-party sites easily. You will notice that dark mode is applied to menus, pop-ups, and the headers. The sidebar, which already had a sort of a dark mode look, will stay the same in both dark and normal mode. In Mail, for instance, click the cog icon down in the lower left-hand corner, then choose Personalisation and tick the Dark mode box.

Another huge benefit to dark mode is that it also saves a lot of battery life on your device. It is true on Android and iPhone.
