Night Mode

Deat Duolingo Team, could you please think about making a dark interface. That would be really, really great because some of us use Duolingo in the dark and it hurts a lot the eyes to have this strong white light right onto my face. It seems like in these last interface updates you just made the website even more "day-ish", when all I (and I belive lots of other people) would love is a night mode!

Yea, that's a good idea actually. I'm also more used to dark interfaces so that would be really helpful and my eyes would hurt less

I use https://userstyles.org/styles/169205/darklingo for a dark mode. Since Duolingo keeps updating all the time it makes it so a lot of themes require updates.

In the meantime, there's a Google extension called Dark Reader that can make any website have a night mode, it's also very adjustable so you can set it to your preferences. Highly recommended.

But if you use google extensions like that, it has side effects on your browser. I couldn't see images on google documents for a while until I got troubleshooting and they helped me out. Duolingo just needs to make one.

Too buggy for my purposes.

If the suggestions listed by previous members don't work for you, check your system for "night shift" settings. I have that (mac/iphone). It can automatically dim the screen and adds a yellow cast to the screen to combat the notorious blue light that causes havoc with sleep.

I agree, however, that a "night mode" would be nice. Hopefully their developers are tinkering with it right now.

I'm sure it would be good for lots of folks to have a night mode. For myself, I hope it will be an added option, not an update to the interface. I see the white version well and have trouble with dark setups. {<<== old guy}

"I resemble that remark."

I was born half blind and take "barrier free" to heart.

Yes please! I can't use duolingo for very long because my eyes get terribly dry from the white screen. I use dark mode wherever possible.
