Hey guys! This suggestion was brought up on the Community before, and this is on our Product team's radar, although not on the short-term roadmap. I'll keep you posted, and thanks for reaching out 🙌

I decided to create a custom theme injected by a chrome extension. It does not style any of the paid features nor all free features. But it works pretty well for me for 4 months now. But it may become buggy in the future when Wrike dev team changes major features.

A screenshot can be found at github. Feel free to check it out: https://github.com/jbjhjm/dark-wrike-theme

Would love to see this be made a priority.  Now that Office (any most other applications) offer dark mode it is difficult on the eyes to transition back and forth to Wrike.  This may not have been a critical offering 2 years ago but it's essential now.

Wrike needs to adopt dark themes or could lose users

This is something that JIRA, a competitor, does have on their desktop application. This should most certainly be on the short-term radar for the product team at Wrike.

In the meantime, while waiting for Wrike to catch up, try Dark Reader

If it is of any help, I built a chrome extension injecting a dark theme for wrike. Of course this cannot follow the concept of scoped Angular components. But feel free to take a look and use anything you find useful. https://github.com/jbjhjm/dark-wrike-theme

Today Wrike went from a dark dark blueish color we've all become accustomed to, to a bright windows95 looking teal. I went through every theme, and they are very gaudy, the closest i could find is a dark purple? why is there 3 shades of white but not a GRAY or BLACK? This is pretty silly. This is business software not printshop deluxe. can we get some professional-looking app aesthetics please? this is pretty sad. 
Please don't take this as a whiney complaint from an end-user who just wants their way. This is truly a poor development decision on behalf of everyone involved with Wrike and reflects poorly on the company as a whole. This tool is the life blood for all of your customers. Take this request seriously.

Couldn't agree more with Joey. People ask for dark mode so you make everything... lighter? It's been a year since this came up. To quote Joey, Wrike is "the life blood for all of your customers". People look at it all day 5 days a week, on average. It's plain unhealthy for the eyes to be looking at bright screens for 8 hours a day. For someone like myself who got eye surgery a short while ago, I had to revert to the browser and use a Chrome add-on just to be able to use Wrike. Even your competitor JIRA has dark mode on their app. I use dark mode on my Mac. Slack has dark mode. Mail has dark mode. Calendar has dark mode. See the pattern?

Hi, it's been over a year since this mock up was made and requested (great reference point). I see this as an essential feature which is standard in many applications these days, big and small . Is there an ETA on this implementation please?

Thanks

“We don’t plan to add Dark mode in the near future, but we’ll definitely keep it in mind for future updates to the New Experience“

Thank you for your continued feedback here, everyone! The team is now working on the New Wrike Experience improvements, but they definitely have this suggestion on their radar. The dark mode isn't on their short-term roadmap, but they understand the need here and plan to research this. I'll keep you updated; thank you again for your insights!

Thank you Lisa for the reply. I can appreciate that the need is understood but I don't understand why it is only being researched. Dark mode on the Mac was announced 2.5 years ago because of a huge demand. It was probably the most requested feature for years. Now Wrike is the only App for me that is always open but lacks this feature. You have made some nice strides to make Wrike look cleaner but all of that is negated because I literally hate looking at it because it is blinding. I hope the team changes its mind and decides to make this a priority.

Couldn't agree more with Dale. As a tool I spend hours in every day, compared to every other app I access (CC, Office, Teams, emails etc) this is the only one without a dark mode. It feels very dated as a result and is a real strain on the eyes.

Thank you Lisa.  This is an important update for us and I think many Wrike users will benefit from the addition.

Surprising and disappointing to see this is not already a feature. The lack of dark mode is the main reason I would consider a competitor over Wrike. All my applications have dark mode other than Wrike and it really does make it an eye sore in comparison. Most of my colleagues had no idea that almost all applications have a dark mode feature but are now all using it if available. Unfortunately, based on my experience, "isn't on their short-term roadmap" will likely mean in software development terms "a nice to have if they have time".

Really hope to see a positive update on this soon.
