Bing is the latest search engine to join the dark side. The Microsoft-owned company announced today that it will be introducing a new feature called “Dark Mode” which will allow users to switch their interface from light to dark.
The move comes as more and more companies are embracing darker themes in their products, including Apple’s macOS Mojave and Google Chrome’s Incognito mode. Dark Mode has become increasingly popular among tech enthusiasts who prefer its sleek look over traditional white backgrounds.
Microsoft says that Bing’s Dark Mode was designed with user privacy in mind, allowing people to browse without leaving behind any digital footprints or traces of activity on their device. It also helps reduce eye strain when using devices at night or in low-light environments by reducing glare from bright screens.
To activate Bing’s Dark Mode, simply go into your settings menu and select “Dark Theme” under the Appearance tab. Once enabled, all of your searches will appear against a black background instead of white one for an easier viewing experience while browsing online content such as images or videos. Additionally, text colors have been optimized for better readability on darker backgrounds so you can easily find what you’re looking for without straining your eyes too much!
But there are other benefits beyond just aesthetics: research shows that using a dark theme can help conserve battery life on mobile devices since they don’t need to use as much power displaying lighter colors like whites and grays compared to brighter ones like reds and blues. This could come in handy if you’re out and about with limited access to charging points!
In addition, some studies suggest that switching between light/dark modes may improve cognitive performance due to improved focus levels when working with different color schemes – something which could prove useful during long study sessions or work days spent staring at computer screens!
While this isn’t necessarily groundbreaking news (many other search engines already offer similar features), it does show how committed Microsoft is towards providing its customers with an enjoyable browsing experience no matter where they are or what time of day it is – even if it means going down the ‘dark’ path! With this new update now available across all platforms (including iOS & Android) we expect many users will be taking advantage of this convenient feature soon enough – especially those who value both convenience & privacy alike!
