Tired of being dazzled by the mobile’s white theme when you use it in the dark? It will probably end in Android Q, which gets a dark system theme.
But now it seems that a dark system theme becomes a reality. Android Police has spotted a comment from a Google developer in Google’s Chrome Browser Error Reporting System. Here the developer writes:
“Dark theme is an approved Q function (…) The Q team (developers working on Android Q, ed.) Would like to make sure that all pre-installed apps support the dark theme. To launch the dark theme successfully, all user interface elements must have a dark theme by May 2019. ”
Elsewhere, the developer mentions that the dark theme can be turned on and off under Settings ➜ Screen kt Dark Theme. The idea of the function is thus that third-party apps also switch to a dark theme when activating the function in the phone’s settings.
However, for a start, it will probably be quite limited how many apps support the feature, as Google probably publishes an API over the coming months in connection with a beta release of Android Q. Then, developers probably have the opportunity to support dark themes in their apps.
