Dark mode is an optional setting that changes the background of an app’s interface, like Facebook, from white to black, and text from black to white.

Dark mode consumes less battery on your device because displaying darker pixels on an LED screen uses less power than displaying white ones. Some people also find that it’s less straining on the eyes, and many believe that the reduced blue light helps them sleep better, though it’s not scientifically proven.

All Facebook users have access to the dark mode feature in any desktop web browser, like Google Chrome and Safari, for both PC and Mac computers.

If you’re a Discord user, you’re probably spending a decent amount of time looking at screens. And if that’s the case, the constant bright light of your computer or phone screen might start bothering you.

While there isn’t any evidence that dark mode can relieve eye strain, running dark mode can look cooler aesthetically, and it can also help your device save battery, depending on what type of screen you have.
