Whether you call it night mode or dark mode, it’s a trend that plenty of websites and apps have embraced.
Hulu is joining the party by rolling out Night Mode to all web users. It swaps the traditionally brighter colors of an interface for darker tones, like grey or black. For classic software users or fans of Slack, it’s akin to changing the theme.
Night Mode on Hulu’s web version changes the whole site, from the homepage to the search box and the show pages. Switching to darker colors can lessen eye strain, but can make consuming content a more immersive experience. Sound like it’s up your alley? Night Mode is available for all Hulu users now.
Here’s how to enable Night Mode on Hulu Web.
1. Log in to Hulu
This step may be self-explanatory, but you need to subscribe to Hulu before you can change out a theme. Just enter your username and password to authenticate.
2. Hover over your profile
Moving the mouse over your profile name in the top right-hand corner will cause a menu to appear.
3. Flip on Night Mode
On that drop down menu, click the toggle button next to Night Mode to dim in the lights. Hulu has done an excellent job implementing this across the service, including the homepage, show pages, and menus.
4. Break out the popcorn
It’s as simple as that. The darker theme will really help to put spooky films in the right mode. Even better, Night Mode will be available year-round, so you can dim the lights and immerse yourself whenever you want.
