The Slack finally (!) has dark mode and if you want to learn how to enable in your application, you are using an Android phone or an iPhone (iOS), follow the tips below. But first, make sure you have the latest version of the application.

In Slack mobile applications, as of March 2019, you can choose between a light mode and a dark mode. Night mode makes reading and writing much easier and “relaxes your eyes,” allowing you to change the subject for more contrast.
