Recently, many companies are pushing this dark mode feature in their apps and even on their websites, The main reason behind this implementation is that the companies are focusing more on user experience day-by-day.
Dark mode in the apps and websites helps the user to read the contents and texts better without putting much strain on the eyes, in the dark conditions.
“Dark mode prevents the user’s eyes from getting weak by reducing the harmful blue light of the screen”
As you all know that modern smartphones and devices are coming now with the OLED screens due to which battery gets consumed in a few hours only. Because these screens consume more battery power than other screens.
