Google is rolling out an update for the Gmail app from Wednesday, which allows support for a dark mode.
The update is rolled out from the Google server and is therefore not yet available to everyone, even if the most recent Gmail version is installed.
With the release of Android 10, Google has added a dark mode for the entire operating system. All Google apps would receive an update, so that the dark mode can be used. In addition to Gmail, only the Google Play Store has not yet received the update with a dark mode.
Nowadays, many software developers choose to add a dark mode to their applications. The advantages of this are that a dark mode is less stressful for the eyes in a dark environment. Black parts of the screen can be completely switched off on an OLED screen, which in theory means that the battery lasts longer.
Microsoft, developer of the mail program Outlook, among others, was just ahead of Google on this point. Outlook for Android received the update with a dark mode on Monday.
