Clubhouse Delivers "Dark Mode" Interface
August 22, 2019

Clubhous released Dark Mode, a new interface theme making it possible for users to enable a mode where lighter text is displayed against a dark background.

This is the first of many accessibility features and customizable themes Clubhouse will be releasing.

Dark Mode’s popularity is on the rise. It has been attributed to reducing eye fatigue, improving readability and focus, and appeals to those who appreciate a darker aesthetic. In the last year, many popular web and mobile applications have made it possible to activate a Dark Mode including Slack, Twitter and Google Chrome.

Clubhouse’s Dark Mode release is built for its core audience, software teams. Most developers work with tools that support dark modes such as text editors, IDE (integrated development environment), and their terminals. Moving from a workflow that is dark into a light environment can be jarring and disruptive.

“Building dark mode is deeply rooted in one of Clubhouse's core values, to ‘bring people joy.’ Dark Mode makes it possible for our users to work in a way that fits into their workflow and can be customized to the way they like to work,” said Clubhouse co-founder and CEO Kurt Schrader. “Also, it just looks awesome!”
