Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.4 update to its public beta testing group, one day after seeding the third beta to developers and two weeks after releasing the second macOS Mojave 10.14.4 public beta.

The macOS Mojave update can be downloaded using the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store after downloading the appropriate profile from Apple's beta testing website. Apple's beta testing site gives users access to iOS, macOS, and tvOS betas.

macOS Mojave 10.14.4, along with iOS 12.2, introduces support for Apple News in Canada for the first time, allowing Canadian users to read the news in French or English.

The update also includes support for Touch ID-enabled Safari AutoFill and automatic Dark Mode themes in Safari. That means if you have ‌Dark Mode‌ enabled on macOS Mojave, when you visit a website with a dark theme, it will be activated automatically. You can see a demo of the feature here.

macOS Mojave 10.14.4 will likely be in beta testing for the next several weeks as Apple refines features and works out bugs. After that, it will see a release alongside iOS 12.2, watchOS 5.2, and tvOS 12.2.

Same here - I have not looked back since dark mode was made available but dang, even with Night Shift on, on the 27" iMac there is just too much white. Just discovered that DuckDuckGo's search result has dark mode as well, and it is awesome. I don't know how I lived without dark mode.

The best thing about this third public beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.4 is that space bar now opens a photo and return opens the photo in edit mode in Photos. Finally!

What I wish Apple would add is an auto light mode/dark mode option like tvOS has. This would match the dynamic Mojave wallpaper perfectly. I hate to have to enable dark mode manually and switch to light mode during the day.
Agree, meanwhile you can use these tips from osxdaily.com : ToogleDarkMode ('http://osxdaily.com/2019/01/29/toggle-dark-mode-light-mac-via-spotlight/')
