LinkedIn for Android could gain a dark mode in the near future, according to a new report. App researcher Jane Manchun Wong spotted an unreleased dim color option while going through the app's code via CNet.

Wong shared a blog post on the findings and highlighted that "This Dark Mode appears to be in an early stage of development, understandably."

Dark modes are very popular among mobile users who use their phone in low-light settings in which a bright white screen can feel blinding. If the app gets a dark mode, you'll be able to search for a job or contact a colleague at night more easily.
