So this has been suggested 2 years ago, yet all that they do ia change the font and interface. I'm really looking forward if Upwork have Dark Theme with some green and white on it. It eases the eye to search for job on both mobile and PC. Please make it available for us to choose.

Google has an extension for dark mode.

I have not tried it, but perhaps it serves you for something ๐Ÿ™‚

When is Upwork going to add dark mode on the website and on the apps?

Hi Ghazali,

 

Thanks for taking the time to share your suggestion. I'll pass this along to the appropriate team again and hope our team will consider your suggestion in the near future.

 

Thank you.

Pradeep.

 


Upwork

[image: image.png] use this chrome extension called "dark reader"

Yes, I get it, I've used several browser dark theme extensions but it still won't be better than the one from Upwork. For example, on the first image attached, the Upwork logo is a JPG image with a white background and this background will still be white using the dark theme extension because the logo is not in PNG or SVG, etc.

 

The extension helps a lot but still can't beat the one coming from Upwork.

+1 my eyes are burning like hell at night ๐Ÿ˜ข

Easy dark theme for all websites on chrome:

Go to this URL: 
chrome://flags/#enable-force-dark

And restart chrome.

 

Thanks for this, it works perfectly. On Chrome at least.

I'm having trouble getting to sleep at night which is probably down to me working late in front of a screen. I'm hoping that dimming it down might help.

This deserves more kudos and shouldn't be tucked away where it will be missed, IMO.

Have you tried anti blue light software like flux? It really helps with sleep.

Yes, I use flux already, and I've been changing the settings this week.

I did have my sleeping problems under control, with help from melatonin, but for some reasons it's come back with a vengance for the last 10 days or so (it's been a horrid week).

I've been making changes, though, including cutting out as much light as I can from my PC. I slept better last night so hopefully it's working.

Mostly white color appearing in the Upwork is a symbol that it's a light in the darkness for thousands of people who are using them in darker rooms. ๐Ÿ˜‰

At the cost of their eyes though.

I have absolutely no problem with a white screen and I work in exceptionally good light. I find a dark screen very hard on my eyes. And I  am sure I am not the only one. 

 

But perhaps Upwork could consider an alternative for those who prefer working with a dark screen - some kind of toggle in the settings?

That was me until about a month ago... Then I ended up with really nasty conjunctivitis for the first time in my entire life, which left me barely able to see the screen and my eyes so light-sensitive anything other than dark mode and very muted literally hurt like hell. Like eyes on fire. Very, very painful. The conjunctivitis has now gone, the sensitivity to light remains, more some days, less on others. I have now set everything I can to dark mode as it is the only way I can work. Microsoft Office, thankfully, has a dark mode option. Sometimes a page loading in light mode is like someone sticking daggers into my eyeballs.

That is all anyone is asking for anyway. Many sites have an option, nobody is asking Upwork to change it to dark mode for everyone or as default.

I've had conjunctivitis several times. And sometimes the light sensitivity could remain for several weeks or months. But usually it slowly ended up. Hope you also will get rid of it.

But still it's more comfortable for me to use dark themes when I work in a dark room.  So I hope Upwork will implement a dark theme soon.

Hey,

I wanted to suggest to the Upwork team to work on the dark/night style/mode of the website. 

Because of the time difference with my clients, I work during the night time and the primary colors of the website are white and green. It is too bright during nighttime. I and many other freelancers would greatly appreciate it if the Upwork time introduce dark mode to the UI of the website.

Thanks.

Sad to see that still after over 3 years no one took the time to implement a dark mode. 

I also would love to have the option.

How sad! It's 2022 and all major websites offer dark mode, especially the ones used by devs.

Please add Dark Mode.

My eyes hurt when looking at this white bright theme, especially at night. My eyes are the most precious thing in the world, could you please appreciate our eyes as we do and add the dark mode or dark theme, I don't want Upwork to be a part of losing or weakening my sight, it won't be worth it. Maybe it already existed, how can I find it? 

Thank you!

We need this period. I have photosensitivity because of a chronic condition. I'd like to be here without pain.

I think Upwork should concentrate on taking care of the spam and ensuring their platform stays online! A dark theme would be cool too, but hopefully, they get different developers than the mobile app!

How I can enable Upwork dark theme

I am surprised that the upwork desktop app doesn't come with a dark mode, every time I want to log time or use messages, I have to flashbang my eyes for an uncomfortable amount of time. I can understand that the website doesn't have a dark mode because dark reader exists (thank god for that extension), but there is no alternative for the desktop app.

 

Please, we really need a dark mode for the desktop app.

Why has my Upwork gone dark on its own? I need help turning it off. Ironic isn't it?

 

You can use a program that allows you to have a night setting. I use a free program that enables me to have a black screen and still see all the features. I will use a dark theme if I'm writing or researching for long periods. I do the same with Word, usually making the page a light gray.
