Dark mode is on the rise and users seem to appreciate it, to the point that it can actually cut churn. Improve UX and retention by giving users the choice between light and dark modes.
Whether we're talking apps, websites, or emails, dark mode is having a heyday — and for good reason. It's easier on the eyes, enhances accessibility, saves battery life, and people just generally like it. In fact, when an Android app called LIFULL added a dark mode option, 21% of their users selected it, and they saw a 10% increase in retention for those users.

One poll of developers showed 82.7% adoption of dark mode when available. So consider creating a dark design for your product and allowing users to make the decision for themselves. It's a decent time investment, but it could be worth it, depending on your market. To get you started, here's a list of best practices in dark mode design.
