For mobile applications, dark theme UI is so much popular. Every mobile device is now coming with its dark theme user interface. Day-by-day websites are also moving towards the dark interface as it is easier for the eyes. Users feel comfortable using the website or application in a dark mood.
The dark user interface makes it easier to see light content by enhancing visibility. It also increases the number of black pixels it uses, so it consumes less device energy. It will be one of the most important key factors in 2021 as most of the popular tech giants like Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube, and Android all are moving to the dark interface.
Communication is the main factor in business and audience engagement. Most of the websites are now focusing on AI-based chatbots to increase their customer experience.
