Let's hope Slack releases this dark theme soon.

    we devs always prefer dark themes and it has been a while since slack came up ... I am surprised they are now looking for a way to add it instead of keeping it in mind since the very beginning .... 🤷‍♂️

    Theyve been saying this since 2014, it almost seems like they want "slack has no dark theme" to blow up as meme for marketing purposes

    @DevForTheMoney Funny how they always use the word possible/possibility

    I'm convinced Slack, Asana, etc just use Twitter bots for support.

    "Yes, <your request> is very high on our wishlist"

    "This is something we really have been considering, we'll keep you up to date!"

    20 years later — "Our developers have this high on their priority list"

    Try it, browse their replies on Twitter. They're all the same, all without any intention of actually changing anything.

    I'd actually prefer a blunt "Nope, we won't do that anytime soon".

    @bittersweet I actually had my hopes up.

    @aadilp I'm sorry to shatter your trust in our corporate overlords.

    With some hacky patching, you can edit in custom themes yourself though:

    I'm personally using the HotDogStand theme of course, so much better than a light theme

    Good we're not using slack anymore, we already use a dark theme and consume less than 2gb of ram

    @iKameo I believe it goes back even to Windows 3.

    @Artemix Teams already for a year, as company already was paying for office 365, it's already included. No need to pay extra for slack (free version is not enough)

    @Artemix actually now there is also free version of teams, that still offers more than free version of slack... Could be an idea to try it out 🙂
