Reuters dark mode

The main difference between Reuters and other big media outlets (such as New York Times) is that they developed and introduced a night mode for their smartphone apps. While others like New York Times receive numerous requests from their readers to at least implement dark mode on the smartphone apps, Reuters listened and implemented it. It is smooth and easy to enable.

Reuters smartphone apps do have Night Mode
To enable the Reuters dark mode on you smartphone – Open the App -> go to My Reuters App -> select Night Mode

Reuters website doesn’t offer a built-in dark mode
This comes as no surprise since only few tech media outlets offer a dark mode on their web versions. Although it is not a big deal since there are solutions such as Night Eye to solve the problem easily, it makes us wonder what is preventing the company from adding Night Mode to their web version as well. If you want to read the news without getting watery eyes or even headaches (especially if you are a news junkie), Night Eye can enable smooth dark theme for you. All you have to do is pick your preferred browser and install the extension. The rest will happen automatically.

Dark mode is more then just a different design

Dark mode is more than just a cool new trend that everyone is raving about. People tend to forget that there are actually people with eye condition such as photophobia that experience discomfort and pain from bright light. Our screens and the fact that most of the content on the Internet is on bright white backgrounds is a guaranteed discomfort for people with eye conditions. Dark mode extensions like Night Eye helps people to read and enjoy the Internet for longer period of time without any negative side effects.
