Google now promoting the use of dark theme in android apps

Women can be charged up to £,7,000 for giving birth

While black uses the least power and white uses the most, Google found that blue used 25 percent more power than green or red.

If you are using a phone with Android Pie software, here's how you can manually enable Dark Mode on your device. Especially with devices that sport an OLED display, the dark theme has been known to reduce stress on the battery life.

Google already published the Android Security Year in Review detailing the open source platform's trends, new features and enhancements. Presenting this data to developers seems like the first step of making a case that integrating dark UI options is important. Hence, now the tech giant Google's well-known and the most used mobile operating system, of course, Android seems to be preparing to adopt this mode and thus, manage to save battery life. At maximum brightness, white drained the most battery life. The same has been showcased by Google in its Android Dev Summit this week via slides that compared the power drawn with many different color backgrounds. These have an AMOLED and IPS LCD panel, respectively.

The plea for apps that work in dark modes also stems from a mistake in Google's all-white Material Design. But there may be independent apps that may offer users dark modes, with YouTube being one such example. That's not a big difference, but it does make a difference. The on the left shows all the different power draws when different colors are displayed on the Pixel at full brightness. As well as more closely resembling other Google apps, the redesigned Files by Google has a look that is cleaner and more modern. Next, tap Advanced and scroll down until you find Device theme; tap it, followed by Dark.

All Pixels since the Pixel 3 come with OLED screens, as do Samsung flagship devices like the Galaxy S or Note, and Apple's iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max.

In the past few months, there have been plenty of leaks from Google with their apps turning to dark mode.

The tool, very appropriately dubbed the Google Play in-app update API, gives developers the ability to display dialog boxes in unupdated Android games or apps that either encourage players to update their copy to the latest version and allow them to do so while the app is still running. One hopes that the transparency of its reporting will extend more fulsomely to China in the future, since almost 1 in 5 people on Earth call it home. Google is just priming the pump with all these white apps.
