Just a few days ago, the search giant Google announced Android 10. The most noticeable feature of Android 10 is its system-wide dark mode. Not only Google, but Apple has also announced a dedicated dark mode in iOS 13. So, with all these things happening, it’s pretty sure that Dark mode is here to stay. As per Google, Dark mode can help you in two ways – it will consume fewer battery resources and will cause less strain on the eyes, especially in dim environments.
The dark mode feature is only limited to Android 10, and right now, it’s only available for Pixel smartphones. If you are using an older version of Android like Android Marshmallow, Nougat, etc. then there are chances that your phone might not receive the Android 10. By look at these situations, third-party developers have decided to add dark modes to their respective apps.
