O Slack It is a team communication application with a wide range of features, which for many are the differentials that put you ahead of alternatives such as Microsoft Teams or Discord.

Even though it is a very complete and widely used service, just now, in September 2019 the Slack now has a dark mode available. As a user of Slack, I can say that a feature that was sorely lacking.

Some use the dark mode simply because they like it, others because they work at night, in a dimly lit environment, suffer from migraine, or have some visual problems. Cases in which the dark mode can really make all the difference.

O Slack already has dark mode in the mobile app, which has separate settings from the desktop version. Using dark mode on your smartphone does not mean that you also have to use it desktop. According to the team of Slackin the near future the theme functionality in the desktop versions of the application will work in sync with the theme of your system, ie if you are using a dark theme on your system, Slack automatically use the dark mode. And vice versa.

In your original post on Slack blog, the team explains that the delay to launching the dark mode was due to the fact that they wanted to build a dark mode that worked perfectly in any and all of the Slack. To achieve this goal they had to redesign the entire application interface from scratch, and even re-architect some of these parts.

But finally, to the happiness of all of us who have waited so long, whether for pleasure or need, the dark mood of Slack finally arrived!
