Dark mode has officially made its way to all users on Android and iOS devices. Users on both platforms will be able to choose to turn dark mode on or off within the app settings, while Android users will also be able to have it turned on automatically with battery saver enabled.
Happy Dark Monday. 🖤

Android 10 and iOS 13 will also both feature systemwide dark modes that can be enabled in the system settings, and the Outlook mobile apps should automatically switch if the user turns it on. This allows those on either platforms to not only more comfortably check their inboxes in darker environments, but could potentially save battery in the long run, as well.
Microsoft is also working on bringing dark mode to the company’s other apps as well, including those used on Office.com. “A cross-company design collaboration propels us to seamlessly bring Dark Mode to the broader M365 product suite, and today marks the initial rollout of Dark Mode on Outlook for iOS and Android, as well as Office.com,” John Friedman, Head of Microsoft Office design on the Microsoft Design blog last month. “The upcoming launch of iOS 13 will then extend this rollout to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneDrive, Planner, and To-Do on mobile.”
