Ring app 2.0.0 & Mac OS Dark Mode

The new Ring application doesn’t look so good when “dark mode” is enabled in Mac OS Mojave.

Was surprised to see that 2.1 update didn’t fix this issue since this was known for quite some time and was an advertised feature for 2.0.

I apologize this was not fixed in this release. Rest assured, this has been brought to the App team and a fix is in the works. Thank you for your patience!

Hardly a solution given dark mode was advertised and the latest fix hasn’t resolved the issue.

I’m kind of agreement here. No idea if others feel this, way, but the product seems to be reversing and feels more and more beta every day. I can barely get the app to load upon motion or ring these days and then I end up thinking that my machine has some sort of conflict with issues like this one. Just giving the Ring team honest feedback!

I suggest uninstalling and reinstalling your app if you are experiencing any problems, @piddonkadonk. If you’re still experiencing a delay, give our support a call so they can assure everything is up and running to its full potential :slight_smile:

I found this workaround, which excludes the Ring app from the system-wide dark mode. It at least makes the app usable.

In a terminal, run the following, then restart the Ring app:

defaults write com.ring.mac NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool yes

To undo it, run the following, and restart the Ring app again:

defaults delete com.ring.mac NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance


You’re the real MVP.


A real solution! Thanks Ring for not fixing this. In dark mode there is text that is just 100% hidden, like in the chime settings.

Thanks to the WORKAROUND that @bchavet suggested. Thanks @bchavet.

Ring Team, this workaround is NOT a solution, till your Dev Team fixes the issue. It’s frustrating when well developed solutions suddenly regress and become awful when large corporations take over.
