Dark Mode significantly reduces eye strain and visual fatigue by minimizing the blue light emitted from your device. This is especially beneficial when using your devices in darker environments or at night, as it promotes relaxation and enhances the quality of your sleep.

2. Aesthetic Appeal

Dark Mode lends a sleek and stylish appearance to apps and menus, making them visually appealing and contributing to an overall improved user experience.
