You have my voice, bro

Here's a qucik rendition on how it might look based on the job feed. Would really love to have this option as working at night with all that #FFFFFF and #F2F2F2 around is a tad bit tiresome.

Hi Vladimir, 


I'm sorry I had to edit your post as your screen grab contained private information such as your name, and job post names. 

Feel free to upload the screen grab again, making sure to black out your profile name, and your job feed. Thank you for your understanding.

I'm sorry I had to edit your post as your screen grab contained private information such as your name, and job post names. 

Hey Avery, uhm lol... there was NO private information as I did put "Name Surname" instead of my real name and surname. Also, the job posts were edited to keep the private information private; so they were just examples. Robot Frustrated

So here's the reupload.

Please note: I've changed the job post descriptions to the more obvious "Lorem ipsum" text but the name still is "Name Surname", so NONE of the informations (including countries to be extra safe) are real.

I really have no idea why y'all keep deleting this image. It's kinda funny how much you just don't read or look at the posts but edit them mechanically. But hey, I can try agin, lol. Third time's a charm. I'm repeating again: NO INFO IS REAL. NO PRIVATE INFORMATION IS IN THE SCREENSHOT. The text is 'Lorem Ipsum' template and locations/places 'Wakanda' and 'Narnia', It's a dumb example of how you can add an improvement to Upwork. Just an option.

I would love a dark mode option here.

Hi Vladimir, 
How did you do that? I have been trying with extensions, but nothing worked out. Sorry for disturbing!

Hi Noha,

 

Is there anything I can assist you with? Could you please share more details regarding your post? Thank you.

Please share the details that how can we convert Upwork in dark mode/ Night mode.

Good idea! But I think upwork have do some more important things to do.

Well, I for one would like it bumped up the priority list. I have the messages window open a lot, often in the evenings, and even with f.lux or night mode settings it's still a bit of an eye sore.

 

Long story short, upwork make that option or not, doesnt matter.

Just search for darkmode extension for whatever browser you are using and you will be able to turn any website dark with just one click.

Iโ€™ve just installed my extension for safari.

Problem solved!!

Cheers..

I think it is right.

Hey guys, I've got this app updated every week and still no dark theme in the Upwork Time tracker windows app?

I bet most of the freelancers working at night so it should be extremely useful.

Everyone who need this, let's give some kudos to this topic for Upwork Dev Team to add this option!

hell yeah

Hi , Now these days every apps adding their feature with dark heme mode. Every body knows about the benefits of dark mode with visual comfort. May I ask how long upwork will take steps to add dark theme mode feature ???

Hi Mohammad,

 

Thank you for your feedback, I will share it with our team. Once we have any plans for introducing a dark mode we will be sure to announce it here in the Community. Thank you.

a dark theme would be  super useful as the current color scheme is very eye straining

I doubt this will be high up on their list of things to do.

At least just the the time tracker app... I use chrome with a dark mode extension that works just fine... the web looks pretty cool and my eyes are so grateful, I get headaches so easy with any flash of light, I gotta be carefull or I gotta take like at least an hour out of the light just to avoid a migraine....
 Not trying to be dramatic, but just a reminder, whenever you got the time upwork ppl, but please soon. Thanks! 

Hi everyone,
Is there any change, any update? Do upwork have a dark mode now? Especially on mobile phone app?

Thanks

There is a chrome extension that can be used for the internet version
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dark-reader/eimadpbcbfnmbkopoojfekhnkhdbieeh?hl=en-US

In 2020 lots of sites support dark themes. Some examples include search engines, social networks, video hostings, source code hostings, message boards. 
Many of them detect which theme is set in the current OS or browser using the `prefers-color-scheme-dark` CSS media query and apply the same theme to the site . More info can be found by searching `prefers-color-scheme-dark` on the internet. Other sites allow to switch themes manually. And some of them can change theme either manually or sync it with OS depending on the user's choice. Also all major operating systems and browsers have dark themes.

I know that there are dark user styles and browser extensions which replace site backgrounds with dark colors, but result frequently looks bad and after any changes of the site structure and site CSS styles these user styles and extensions might stop working properly. So native dark site themes are always preferred. And in case of Upwork apps there's no way to use such extensions. 

So I think it's time to implement dark theme for Upwork site, Upwork desktop tracker app and Upwork mobile apps.  Dark themes save my eyes so much when working at night and I will be so grateful to Upwork team for a dark theme. 

Finally a plugin that works.  thanks for posting that.

Unpopular opinion. While you guys are on upgrading things around here, a Dark Mode for Upwork would be excellent. Thanks in advance! ๐Ÿ˜

Hi Mawra,

 

Thanks for your feedback. It has been suggested here in the community already, but I'll be happy to share it again with the team.

Mawra, I'd love a dark them too! ๐Ÿ˜

It would make be feel like the Dark Knight every single time I logged in and typed some messages to clients. ๐Ÿคช

But as this has been suggested before and we're still waiting it to happen, I wouldn't hold my breath. ๐Ÿคญ

So, I guess we need to bring all that darkness into this platform by ourselves. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Would be glad to work with you on this! ๐Ÿคฃ

Mikko, I don't know about others but if we unite, we can summon all the darkness from nightmares and unleash it here on Upwork! *Evil laugh*
All you people better join us... Or be the victim! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

It's dead simple to force dark mode onto errything.

All you need do is open the hidden Chrome menu and turn it on.

Note that this won't end the blinding green but it will go some ways.

Tried it. Didn't get the kick I get from Insta's dark theme. I'm a NYCTOPHILE! I WANT DARKNESS! :new_moon_face::new_moon_face:
