LinkedIn’s Dark Mode is underway

Working late into the night, wanting to check out how your co-workers and old friends are doing, or possibly looking for another job. You pulled up your phone and opened LinkedIn, the screen shines. It’s blinding. Did the bright light come from their success or just the white-blue UI? Probably the latter.

Good news! LinkedIn is bringing Dark Mode to the app. I came across the unreleased Dark Mode in LinkedIn’s mobile app for Android by looking into the code underneath.

This Dark Mode appears to be in an early stage of development, understandably. For now, only certain parts of the app has been reworked to support the Dark Mode. For example, dark icon displaying on a dark background, vice versa.

The time it takes to develop and release experimental features like this varies. I am as curious about the release timeline of LinkedIn’s Dark Mode as you are!
