Come on, everybody's doing it.  Not just the left bar, the whole thing.  A bunch of our users actually use the web app and overwrite the CSS with Stylus to accomplish this.

thanks for your consideration.

Thanks for the feedback!  A true dark theme is in our long term plans :)

Considering I have seen ideas that are "coming soon" pending for over three years, I would (in all honesty) say long term plan for them means around 5-7 years.

For those of you like me who can't wait for "long term plans," here's my workaround.

Step 1: Install Dark Reader extension for Firefox/Chrome
Step 2: Use Ring Central Web App found on their site after logging in
Step 3: Allow your retinas time to heal from looking at the brightness of the thick client at early hours

Hope this helps!

Glad I came across this. Thank you Caleb. What a difference this will make for my eyes.

Thanks Caleb!  I use an MS HD LifeCam and found an app that applies most of the native configs that the Windows app has - but for the Mac.  It was compensating for the lack of a Dark Mode in RC as any screen open with a white background overwhelmed and washed out anything in the cameras pov.  My eyes thank you!

A dark theme that will ease the eye stress and also reduce battery consumption to a good extent.

Hello there, the dark mode could be better to prevent eye strain... but for the reason of battery consumption then, it is not. reference to read: https://www.maketecheasier.com/are-dark-themes-better-for-eyes-battery/

Hello, my company uses RC and right now due to an eye condition, I am unable to stare at anything very bright or blue light. So I cannot use the app at all. Please come up with a solution asap.

I can feel a physical difference in eye strain when using a app in dark mode. Both Microsoft Teams and Webex Teams have good dark mode options. I hope RC/Glip can catch up.

The new RC app is almost unusable.
