Google is finally rolling out the much-awaited dark mode for Android Gmail. This new feature comes in the wake of their Android 10 launch.
This new version of the Gmail application will be available with version 2019.08.18.267044774 available on Google Play Store.
To access this new feature, a pixel user running Android 10 needs to update the Gmail app or install the latest version. Next, the user should go to settings, choose “theme” and then select a preferred theme out of the ones available. A user can choose between dark, light or restore system default, this is according to CNET report.
Based on this report, Gmail’s dark option is expected to turn a user’s background from the current setting to dark grey. The theme applies to emails and inbox folders as well.
A U.S search engine has mocked this feature new feature along with Google’s Android 10 when they came to the market. Google began tests on this dark mode on Android devices at the beginning of this year, when it launched dark mode on a select number of devices.
It is not clear whether Google plans to make this feature automatic so that it Gmail turns grey on its own at night. The future is rife with plenty of opportunities for Google to explore.
