How to enable dark mode on live-chat widget?

Last updated on Apr 10, 2024

Modern websites enable users to switch between light and dark modes. Therefore, a live chat that works with both themes is important. This guide helps you set up dark mode for the Chatwoot live-chat widget on your website.

Here is a quick glimpse of how dark mode functions on the live chat widget:

To enable dark mode on Chatwoot widget, use the darkMode parameter along with the chatwootSettings.

darkMode parameter supports two values.

  1. light - Enable only light mode. This is the default value.

  2. auto - Enable dark mode based on the operating system preference.

window.chatwootSettings = {
  //... other Settings
  darkMode: "auto",

Note: dark only is not supported now. We will add the support in future releases.
