Open the Slack app on your phone.

More and more apps have been rolling out dark mode recently.

Ditch the tradition and swap to white-on-black text by making use of the new dark mode in the Slack app for iOS and Android devices.

You can make Slack a bit darker on iOS and Android now.

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. So, if you want to get Dark Mode right now, you will need to enter the Beta program. 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.

Once you are approved (or if you already are), turn dark mode on by again navigating to Settings and toggling the mode on that page.

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

'The Disappearance Of Madeleine McCann' Will Hit Netflix Tomorrow
The Netflix series promises new interviews with people connected to the case, with input from more than 40 contributors in all. Madeleine McCann is still alive and being held captive by child traffickers claims a controversial new Netflix documentary.

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.

No wonder every company is eager to see it being sensible to people's concerns and is offering the same as part of the latest updates for several apps.

Facebook Messenger just started testing out a dark mode for its mobiles app.

If you're more bothered by the color of Slack messages than the contents therein, the Slack dark mode was made for you.

Dark mode switches the interface to a darker colour theme, which makes prolonged usage easier on the eyes. It also helps conserve the battery.

9to5Mac spotted this update on the workplace collaboration app.
