Anisotropies in the electromagnetic emission produced by dark matter (DM) annihilation
or decay in the extragalactic sky are a recent tool in the quest for a particle DM evidence.
In particular, the angular two-point cross-correlation signal between non-gravitational DM emissions and the gravitational manifestation of DM has been shown to be a promising novel technique to disentangle a WIMP DM contribution.
I will discuss recent results and future prospects involving gamma-rays from the Fermi-LAT telescope and gravitational tracers of DM distribution in the Universe, such as lensing and galaxy surveys.
