    I don’t see why it doesn’t auto swap between light and dark based on if you are using the light or dark mode in windows / night mode on phones

    Why not? Some people want full customization. I've got dark android theme but white discord theme. But automatic time based switching as an option would be great so my eyes wont burn late at night!

    On phones discord can toggle dark mode according to whether dark mode is enabled at the system level, the developers should introduce the same principle on Windows (which has a system-level dark mode).

    Yeah, but I'm talking time based not what the system is.

    It's pretty simple to enable both I'd of imagined, light, dark or auto, with auto respecting system wide settings. Given as windows has a "night light" feature that changes the colour by time, this would provide a nice solution that doesn't create a weird non colour consistent arrangement.

    Night light just removes blue from your screen during specific times to reduce eye strain, it does NOT change the windows theme from light to black...

    Support.
    I have a tendency to switch to light mode in the day because it is very hard to read it in the sun or bright places on my phone and to dark since it's bright at night.

    I get that positive contrast (light legend on a dark field, aka dark mode) is all the rage these days, but for many of us, negative contrast (dark legend on a light field, aka light mode) is an important accessibility feature (easier on the eyes to read) by day. At the same time, in darker ambient lighting, common in the evening and at night, light themes produce a lot of blue light, which has been shown to disrupt many people's sleep cycles. Dark mode goes even further than color shifting toward red, by brute-force suppressing the amount of any light the screen produces, with all the black or otherwise darker backgrounds.

    Because of this, both Apple and Microsoft (possibly Google, too) have developed operating system-wide options to automatically switch between light and dark modes at sunrise and sunset, or perhaps even setting a custom rule for those of use who might be starting our day before sunrise. 

    Discord should be able to support this switching as well.

    They should have it just follow the system theme if they want to be lazy about it. The only OS that doesn't support automatic switching out of the box is Windows, and even then there's plenty of ways to add it that also work on a schedule.
