Finally, thanks to Google for hearing users’ requests for implementing system-wide dark mode feature in Android Q. Since OLED panels are being used on smartphones, the dark mode made a noticeable impression. It consumes less power and hence battery drains less quickly. So, in this post, I will show you 9 best dark mode Android apps. Once you will use them, you won’t go back.
Fully-fledged dark mode feature coming to Android operating system with Android Q. However, Google currently, there is a half-backed dark mode feature in Android P. Recently at Google I/O 2019, Google showcased major battery life improvements analyzed while the phone running on dark mode turned on. Google noticed that the dark mode consumes 43% less power at full brightness in the YouTube app.
Of course, it varies from app to app. Because the work behavior changes from app to app. Funnily enough, Google acknowledged that it was a wrong decision to encourage developers to develop apps with white background. Although, with dark mode on/off button, the problem can be solved. After all, with the Android Q, Google jumping on the system-wide dark mode feature. It would covert the majority of Android apps in a dark theme.
