Dark Mode / Night Mode


Userlevel 7

Miro is fantastic on a massive screen. It’s like you can see, arrange and rearrange your mind in 2d. The bright background and colours work well for feeling energised, fresh, and productive early in the day. For those of us who get more done during the night, however, the brightness can feel glaring and have the opposite effect, causing fatigue, especially with extended use.

It feels like a godsend to night-owls that the software industry is finally recognising our needs with dark mode being added to everything. While the implementation would understandably be no small task, I, for one, would greatly benefit from dark mode being added to what has become a fantastic tool in my work and lifestyle.

Thank you for Miro, and the Wishlist,
Walter

Please a dark mode is easier on the eyes and would greatly help when whiteboarding images to make the images feel less stark and contrasted against the white background.  As a professional working in the entertainment industry we certainly need this.  Most modern development platforms and apps have dark modes in 2021.

We need darkmode… it would very helpful.

This really needs to be implemented. I’m sure you have someone in-house that can do colors and should be relatively simple to implement.

Unless you guys really f’ed up making the Desktop App it should be pretty easy to just follow the OS’s theme, both W10 and macOS support this

Yes for dark mode or some ability to change the BG color. Thank you

Will also be switching to another solution until this is added. Miro is the most feature-rich one but the lack of dark mode makes it really unpleasant to use it.

I can’t tell you how awesome this would be. Using Miro in the evening is really rough on the eyes.

After testing few platforms like this, mostly due to absent of dark mode we decided to go with different solution. It’s small feature but so important, and was bailed by Miro team. That’s just sad 😞 I could wait longer but there’s no updates, no ETA, nothing, so no, thanks…. But maybe I will test it again after some time and will be surprised, good luck Miro ;) 

Please, we need it

Why is Dark mode taking so long?.. this is ridiculous.. Its things like this that make us move over to Mural!

Dark mode is not just common sense for the eye strain and the power consumption, it’s an absolute requirement when one is using a BIG monitor, what we have these days.

 

For Miro, I use Dark Reader plugin for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Thunderbird browsers.

https://github.com/darkreader/darkreader

 

But srsly ppl, being able to change the background color is even a simpler feature request… PLZ?

For those of you who can’t wait, there are dark mode browser extensions that do this very well.  Like Dark Reader with Firefox for example...

It’s about time , Im right now working at midnight and the light theme just hurts my eyes alot … Light theme at night are brighter than the sun so if can get the dark mode in the coming updates it would be an eye saver!!

Hey guys, Dark mode is a glaring omission. It shouldn’t take 500 people over a year to convince you.

This feature very desperately needs to be added as soon as possible. I switched from another service for Miro, and the absence of this feature is extremely disappointing. 

I can’t fathom the lack. It should be fairly trivial to implement themes and is a very basic usability and accessibility issue. With the large HDR monitors we use in our offices the bright white background causes eyestrain and pain. There is no practical remedy and the suggested large frame background is not only ineffective but reduces the overall usability of the app. It’s a shame because with a few very simple quality of life changes Miro would see a very quick and substantial increase in adoption throughout  the video game, film, virtual production and other industries. I know most of the companies I work with would adopt it quickly if it was in a state we could actually promote it.

+1 for dark mode. As someone with disabilities that makes it really hard to cope with bright lights/ white screens I can’t believe that in 2021 accessibility options like dark mode are still considered optional. I cannot justify purchasing a plan since the app is so physically uncomfortable to use causing me to develop migraines and nausea. I’m actually considering dropping Miro altogether and buying a different app.

Is there really no option to change the background color or set a dark mode? I was about to purchase this but without either of those the app is not going to be useable for us.

I’ve also been trying to find manners to make it look darker but they don’t really help much.
It would be really amazing a feature such as dark/night theme for it.

Can we please get the Dark Mode?

It’s quite baffling that it is still not available after so many requests from the community.

Kindly do something about this

Miro, can we get a response on this at least? I’m part of at least 5 threads about different, basic features that would make Miro much more pleasant to use and none of them have any responses from the team.

+1 for this. Yes please

Will be more than happy to puchase a paid plan for my whole team if dark mode was available.
I’ve uninstalled the app and trialling the miro web app using https://darkreader.org/ with chrome. This is not my preferred solution.

It’s a hard pill to swallow paying for a product with no dark mode.
The miro team needs to priotize this if they care for their product.
For now, I will refrain as much as possible from using the paid plan and instruct my team to uninstall the app and use miro web app with https://darkreader.org/
See how it goes.
