LinkedIn Unveils Dark Mode For Desktop And Mobile Devices

Sharing is caring!

LinkedIn has good news for its more than 774 million users. LinkedIn users will use dark mode to explore the business-oriented social network with white text on a dark background.

The Microsoft-owned social networking platform revealed its plans to offer dark mode earlier this year, although work on the feature was also seen in 2019. LinkedIn hops on the bandwagon with other tech giants that have adopted a dark theme, such as Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook, and Twitter. Not just this, Google launched dark mode to desktop search last week.

Dark mode, according to LinkedIn, is intended to reduce eye strain and help light-sensitive people. As per the company, the display option is also created to make text simpler to read. Dark mode, which is frequently utilized in low-light situations, may also assist in conserving battery life.

Also, it is important to note that this dark mode feature on LinkedIn will be rolled out to some regions and will be initially available to some users.
