Twitter is finally bringing its Night Mode feature to its desktop website. The social networking company is reportedly in the process of testing out a darker UI for its website — a feature that it first introduced on its mobile app.

According to 9To5Google, Twitter’s Night Mode for its desktop website will not at all change the way the site works. Just like what this feature does to the Twitter app, the timeline on the desktop website will switch to a much darker shade, making it easy for the user’s eyes to view content while enjoying a late-night tweeting spree.

When Night Mode is switched on, all white UI elements on the screen will be transformed to dark gray. Other colors are also changed to fit the darker mood of the website. In effect, the entire website becomes easy on the eyes.

At present, Twitter is only enabling this feature to a select few. To check if you have access to Night Mode, you should click on your profile photo and then select the Night Mode tab (if present) at the bottom of the pop-up list. Doing so will activate the feature. For those who do not have access to Twitter’s desktop website Night Mode, they may view the screenshots here (courtesy of 9To5Google’s Joe Maring) to have a glimpse of the changes this feature does.

Since September of last year, Twitter users were provided with a means to turn the desktop website of the social networking service into a darker shade. A Chrome extension started offering this functionality back then. Given Twitter’s latest move though, users would not need the Chrome extension in the near future if they intend to make the desktop website more pleasing to the eyes at night.

Twitter officially launched Night Mode on its mobile app this past July. The idea behind the feature was to make late-night usage of the Twitter app less painful to the eyes. Apparently, Twitter’s app has a predominantly bright theme that makes use of the white and blue color scheme of the company. The colors on the interface of the app just make it difficult for users to read tweets at night, so introducing Night Mode definitely helped users who spend a long time scanning and reading tweets at late hours.

There’s no information yet on when can users expect Night Mode to be officially added onto Twitter’s desktop website. However, it’s not too farfetched to say that the feature will arrive in the coming months considering that the company is already testing it out. It’s also possible that the ongoing trial feature would be rolled out to a wider audience in the coming weeks.

As previously reported, Twitter has been exerting a lot of effort to make certain changes to its platform for months now. These multiple changes are inspired by the company’s goal of enhancing the user experience its website and mobile apps provide.
