Now with the flagship Facebook app too turning all white, many are likening the same to be the first step before the dark mode makes it to the app as well. Considering Microsoft Teams had a dark mode for a while, Slack is really playing catch-up here, however. Entering your name and the email associated with your Slack account will put you on the list to join the beta.

The dark mode for Slack is now being rolled out to beta testers on both iOS and Android devices, The Verge reported.

9to5Mac spotted Slack updates for the iOS and Android, noting that the feature is now being tested, and helpfully points out how to activate it for yourself.

In case you've not received an app update in the Play Store, head to APKMirror to install this version of the app to get the dark mode.

The popularity of the dark mode option in smartphone apps has been growing, while a confirmation by Google also suggested it directly affects battery life.

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. Dark mode works in most parts of the workplace collaboration app, which is really cool.

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. Just make sure you have the latest update before you go looking.

As you probably know, dark mode has become one of the most requested features for almost every app on both iOS and Android.

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.
