There's a lot of buzz on the internet recently surrounding dark mode, a toggle that allows you to set a normally white screen to a dark one that many say is easier on the eyes. And it's not just the aesthetic look, it's proven to use less power using dark mode on your mobile/tablet device. Dark mode is already sweeping the internet with many popular apps such as Slack, Outlook, Chrome & YouTube all adding a Dark Mode. You can also find it in many gaming consoles such as Nintendo Switch and Xbox One S / X. This was all triggered by macOS Mojave introducing a dark mode. If users request a dark mode feature in an app (they do, frequently), chances are good that it will appear at some point.
