Dark mode soon? 🔜

I don’t know about you but I’m sure Monzo have said dark mode is coming soon for at least the last year or so, granted COVID but stuff is still being developed so what’s the hold up? iOS has had dark mode for ages so why does it seem to hard for Monzo to integrate this into its application? Very frustrating as dark mode has a lot of benefits as we all know, if soon is soon then how soon, Monzo?

If you just say like 3 months, okay cool, see you in 3 months but if you keep saying soon, it’s just like okay see you dec 2022 lmao.

A response from someone would be great :slight_smile: otherwise keep up the good work

There’s a topic discussing this already below and why it’s not a simple job etc. Be sure to vote for it there and this is likely where you’ll hear any news about it too.

I’m checking Settings & Labs multiple times daily to see if the server-side feature :triangular_flag_on_post: has been enabled

One day :soon:

But, I definitely do that too!

I noticed on Monzo’s Insta story yesterday, they said they’re “working on it”, when asked about Dark Mode.

Not sure if that’s any clearer than “coming soon” though. :grin:

At least it shows they still intend to release it and are making active progress!

Good news, as far as I’m concerned.

It’s been ‘worked on’ for probably over a year now, with the first in-app mention of it (as a developer function) back in May last year, found in version 3.35.0 : Since then, it’s been tweaked and looks ready to roll with 2 different dark modes. But it’s not been switched on yet at the :monzo::desktop_computer::soon:

Very interesting!

As an iOS user, I don’t generally pay too much attention to the Android tear downs, but sometimes they do reveal very exciting information so I do check them from time to time.

Add to that the screenshot that got shared in the Better Payments thread a few weeks ago

Now that was such a tease!

There’s not much point voting now, but just in case it tips someone over the edge, vote for Dark mode in the main topic (blue button, top-left):

I had a quick look for your icon in the list of 426 mini-icons of the voters, but my eyes gave up…
