Dark mode has arrived on LinkedIn. The professional network unrolled the feature to all or any members worldwide Monday, saying that it had been a “highly requested” addition to the main redesign it debuted last September. LinkedIn said its team took “a thoughtful approach” to make sure that dark mode took accessibility and inclusivity considerations under consideration and enabled all of its users to require advantage.
The new dark mode feature meets accessibility standards, with color and contrast elements that help reduce eye strain and confine mind light sensitivities. LinkedIn said it adjusted certain colors to satisfy or exceed color contrast ratios for better text legibility and interface controls, so as to accommodate the general light to dark background contrast.
The platform also introduced dark mode versions of its illustrations to enrich the experience, saying in an email to Adweek, “These illustrations capture a good sort of industries and fields beyond tech and represent professionals of all abilities of backgrounds, bringing to life our vibrant and diverse LinkedIn community.” LinkedIn introduced a number of updates and enhancements aimed toward making its platform more accessible and inclusive in April.
