SoundCloud Dark Mode Now Available

by Jeff Ponchick in Announcements November 11, 2019

There’s good news for fans of nighttime aesthetics. SoundCloud Dark Mode is now available for iOS and Android users. A growing trend across online platforms, Dark Mode inverts standard interface color schemes by using a black background and (frequently) white text. The benefits of Dark Mode are still up for debate. Some say it’s easier on the eyes, as well as your device’s battery life, but others argue that’s not necessarily the case. With a music application like SoundCloud, though, one advantage to Dark Mode is the emphasis it places on images. While scrolling through the iOS app, the art accompanying tracks and mixes pops against the velvety black backdrop. For both listeners and creators with a soft spot for album art, this might be an ideal setting for you too. Find Dark Mode under Settings.
