How to Use Slack's Dark Mode in Shift

Yes! Slack has introduced its dark mode to its desktop version and we couldn't help but talk about it. 

This feature is available for all Shift Advanced users.

Dark Mode changes your Slack background to black to improve readability through the reverse color scheme. 

Benefits of Dark Mode

There are various benefits of activating Slack's dark mode, including:

1. Makes content easier on the eyes.

2. Helpful in low light environments.

3. Beneficial for those with visual impairments, visual disorders or migraines.
