Now, after lots of anxiously waiting, Slack is getting an official dark mode. Jumping onto the black bandwagon, the chat and messaging tool is embracing the dark side and giving users the option to ramp up the darkness.

Do note that the Beta program is now full and you will need to wait in the queue before you can participate in the program.
The dark mode in Slack is a fan-requested feature that hit the app in beta form just last weekend, and since then the developers have become confident enough to introduce it into the proper mobile application through the latest update. To join, simply go to the app's settings and tap on the Join Beta option, where a user will be asked to enter a name and an email 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.More news: Samsung keeps the dream of the under-screen camera alive
One of the things we love about the dark mode coming to Slack is that it will work for most parts of the Slack 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 is so much easier on your eyes because often times white backgrounds are harsh on eyes. Along with being easier on the ol' peepers, this should also prove beneficial to your device's battery life. Still, it's a welcome option, especially for those who frequently use the workplace collaboration app throughout the day. It's disabled by default, and activating it will cause the app to restart.More news: Gold prices dip on dollar recovery over Brexit relief
