The White House Website Adds New Features Plus The Cool Dark Mode
White House, the seat of US Presidential power now has new features on its website WhiteHouse.gov, notably dark mode. The site has been completely replaced with a new version for the Biden administration, with some accessibility features like a high contrast mode, which serves as a dark mode, and a toggle to make the font size larger.
To access the dark mode and font toggle, look to the site’s left rail, you’ll see big, easy-to-click or tap buttons, depending on your device which you can use to toggle them.
The White House website won’t switch over automatically even if your device is set to dark mode. This is because the feature serves as an accessibility feature. Meaning it’s there to assist anyone who would have trouble reading or looking at a bright white screen with black text.
