Great news, Trello fans!
We are excited to announce that we are finally (FINALLY) beginning to roll out dark mode for Trello! Dark mode is currently in beta, and we are gradually rolling out the toggle button to the top right corner on your Trello board.
Once you are included in our early access program, you can then click the theme switcher button in the top right corner of your Trello board, which will bring you to this menu:
You can choose whether to review Trello in light mode, dark mode, or to automatically follow your system settings.
We have also added a survey at the bottom if you have any thoughts for us!
In addition to stylizing board backgrounds and card covers, adding colors, stickers, and labels, Trello dark mode is yet another way you’ll be able to personalize Trello.
“Light Mode” Changes
While developing dark mode, we also made some visual changes to the “light mode” option in Trello. Adding light and dark modes is part of a bigger modernization effort of Trello’s UI, including shifting the color palette and other experience updates.
Color palette modernizations were needed because the original Trello colors could not be made compatible with dark mode. We took this opportunity to align our color palette to all other Atlassian products. These color updates gave us the ability to develop Trello web in dark mode, something our mobile app already has.
If you have any feedback on light or dark mode, definitely fill out our survey at the bottom of the dark/light toggle menu.
Why did this take so long?
Turns out, colors are more involved than you might think. Making sure Trello is accessible to everyone continues to be an important consideration in how we make development decisions. Our team did extensive research, customer interviews, and aligned to web standards to make sure that the Trello viewing experience remained accessible across light and dark modes.
My Power-Ups look weird. What gives?
What about Trello mobile apps?
Fun fact, dark mode has been available on Trello mobile for a long time now. So as usual, we’re just playing catch up with our amazing Android and iOS teams.
