LinkedIn is jumping on board the dark mode trend

LinkedIn is joining other social media sites and apps like Twitter, Telegram, YouTube, and soon... Facebook.

Business and employment-oriented social media app LinkedIn is jumping on board the dark mode bandwagon, joining the likes of Twitter, Tumblr, Telegram, Google Maps and other Google services, among many others.

LinkedIn’s under development plan was revealed by tech blogger and white hat hacker Jane Manchun Wong, who is known for uncovering upcoming features by social media apps and other websites.

Wong recently revealed that Facebook, the world’s largest social media site, is close to launching its dark mode feature for its iOS and Android app. On her Facebook discovery yesterday, Wong said she discovered Facebook’s plans when she looked at the code underneath Facebook’s mobile app.

In her latest discovery with LinkedIn, Wong said on her blog post that LinkedIn’s plans are still in an early stage of development as only certain parts of the app has been redesigned to support the new feature.

“The time it takes to develop and release experimental features like this varies,” Wong said.

If confirmed, LinkedIn will be added to the growing list of companies to offer the dark mode option to its users. The dark mode option has silently become the growing trend among app developers as the feature appeals to a great number of users who are looking to protect their eyes while going through their smartphones in dimly lit environments, such as before bed time.

Popular apps and social media sites like Twitter, Telegram and even YouTube now lets users opt for a dark display.

The integration of the dark mode feature for LinkedIn could come soon enough as LinkedIn’s parent company, Microsoft, is known for being a master of the dark arts. The tech giant already offers a dark mode option for the Windows 10, as well as for its video chat and calls app Skype.
