Microsoft Teams Mobile - Dark Theme

If you are a cool kid you have an iPhone X, or at least an iPhone, and if you are trying to be really cool of course you play Pokemon GO like I do. When doing so battery life is a problem. Unlike my good old Nokia 8210 which could go on for days on one charge you will find yourself constantly changing and always carrying a large extra battery pack.

Now, there are some tricks to get more battery life out of your iPhone, such as not using it, killing background activity and notifications, etc., but a so called "dark mode" can be a major power saver: How to squeeze more battery life out of iPhone X

Therefore it is really exciting that Microsoft Teams on iOS now supports a Dark Theme, since version 1.0.66.

Version 1.0.66 where the darkness begins...
So, how do you turn it on?

1. Click the three bars in the top left of the application to expose your profile and click Settings.

2. Click General.

3. Flip the switch to turn on "Dark Theme" and close the application.

4. Next time you start your Teams client it will look much cooler (and preserve battery life)

If you want to use the dark theme even on your desktop you find a nice guide here.

I would also like to point out that this is an idea coming from users of the Microsoft Teams mobile app through Uservoice. Please continue to send in new ideas and vote on Uservoice to make Microsoft Teams even better in the future.
