Google has slowly added dark mode to its app portfolio, while it is preparing to deliver the option in Android Q. Now the Files on Google app is the newest app to win this eye-friendly mode.
According to XDA Developers, The official file management app from Google receives a dark mode in the latest beta version (v1.0.252205711). I also see it on my personal device and is enabled by default with no clear way to disable it.
The dark mode seems to be a combination of OLED-friendly black and dark gray. The settings menu and background of the app are black, while menu signs and other elements use the dark gray scheme instead. In any case, the Files on Google app shouldn't scorch your eyes & # 39;
The dark mode in the Google file manager should also result in energy savings for people with phones with an OLED, such as the Galaxy S10, Google Pixel series or Huawei P30 duo. This is because OLED screens can dim or even disable individual pixels with dark / black colors. In the meantime, LCD screens have illuminated all their pixels, regardless of the colors used.
This is not the only Google app with a dark mode, because we have also seen the option for Google Keep, the Google app, Google Photo & # 39; s, YouTube and more. Are there any more Google apps that should receive dark mode? Let us know in the comments! Otherwise, you can sign up for Google beta files and download the app using the button below.
