LinkedIn appears to be toying with the idea of throwing its hat in the dark mode ring.

Developer and blogger Jane Manchun Wong spotted an unreleased dark mode feature in the code for the professional network’s Android application.

LinkedIn had not responded to a request for comment at the time of this post.

Wong wrote in a blog post that LinkedIn’s dark mode appeared to be in an early state of development, and only parts of the app had been reworked to support it. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
