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

I’m all in with a Dark Mode!

I came here to see if the feature was available. Seems not, but for all the night owls, here’s my workaround in the meantime. 
 

  • Use the web-interface rather than desktop app.
  • Use a browser extension like Dark Reader to change the CSS settings for your view of the board.

I think there is a post asking miro for dark mode which is one year old and still havent got any dark mode. People are just diverting from Miro because of this. The brightness of the screen is so white and un adjustable. Please Do something for this. It was a long asked request.

I would love dark mode. The big canvas is too bright for my taste.

Great one! I would be happy to have that possibility 👍

What do you think, should it be an user or board setting?

Userlevel 6

I think user setting will do. Otherwise, make it a checkbox option when creating a new board. I personally don’t want to go into the settings every time to change the background color to dark. Thanks.

Hm, true. Considering sometimes different time zones between users, different hours of accessing boards - it should be every users private setting.

Please enable a Black Board option along with the white board. I get severe migraine looking at the white screen for long periods, day or night.

I agree. It should be a setting on a per-user level. Most platforms or software either handle it per user or as local app preferences (meaning it won’t carry across devices), but I prefer to set it per user.

It is simply unacceptable in 2020 that apps don't have dark mode.

Also don't forget the title bar in windows should be dark too. Many web-based cross-platform apps neglect it and its incredibly jarring.

its perplexing how, in this day and age, there isn’t a Dark mode (or dark grey like Pure Ref) for every app - its more power efficient and fully white screens buuurn - its def our generations florescent bubs.

“its def our generations florescent bubs.”

 

Oh, now that’s a one-liner that describes it perfectly!  It’s so true!

 

Please!! :grin:

agreed. dark mode would be great for working through the night hours.

Dark mode would be a true blessing indeed.

An update happened yesterday, I was hopping that it contains dark mode feature :(

I can’t use Miro now days since I work at night and the brightness just effects my eyes.

I wish if you guys can upload the update as soon as possible. It’s a mandatory feature that all other products implements.

For someone like me that uses Miro regularly day and night, It will be great to be able to switch between light and dark mode for several reasons such as productivity, mood change, easy on the eye etc. I’m surprised that night mode is not implemented yet:stopwatch:

This would be practical and would awesome. I just went through a 3 day seminar design for Miro community and I was wondering how to create a dark blue background like there was, didn’t find it anywhere :-(

Userlevel 1

I agree.  I’d really like the dark mode too!

Userlevel 1

Please dark mode! Would be cool to swap background just like in Trello.  

Dark mode at the top of the list please, our eyes burn!! the pain!! oh it hurts so much…
