The Google Assistant app is rolling out dark mode cards, and they look pretty terrible

Monday, January 21st, 2019

Dark mode is all the rage on Android right now, with many of even Google's own apps either having or being in the process of adding support for shadier themes (and it's not just Google apps). Soon, Android itself will support a darker palette at the OS level - something many in the community feel is years overdue. Now, it seems the Assistant UI is getting in on the action, and the team's first stab has, to put it plainly, not gone well.

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

XDA has managed to get its hands on an early build of Android Q, confirming that Google's next version of our favorite operating system will include a dark mode, as expected. But plenty of more secrets were hiding inside the image XDA found, including a much-needed app permissions revamp, what may end up being a Samsung DeX-like desktop UI, and piles of smaller features.

But plenty of more secrets were hiding inside the image XDA found, including a much-needed app permissions revamp, what may end up being a Samsung DeX-like desktop UI, and piles of smaller features.

The leaked Android Q image includes a new "Set Dark mode" option in Settings -> Display, thankfully including an automatic setting based on time of day.

Chrome for Android is working on a dark mode

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

Thanks to Google's own leaks, we know that a system-wide dark mode is (finally) coming to Android via the Q release, but until all the apps we use have corresponding dark themes, it won't really matter. That's why we're excited to hear that Chrome for Android is planning a "dark mode experiment," likely similar to the dark theme available on Chrome for Windows.

The upcoming feature, posted to the Chromium Gerrit, was first spotted by 9to5Google yesterday.

Googler seemingly confirms that Android Q will have system-wide Dark Mode

Sunday, January 6th, 2019

It's no secret that Google has been taking steady steps toward supporting dark mode in most of its Android apps. Over the past year, we've seen YouTube, Phone, Contacts, Messages, the Pixel Launcher, Google News, some parts of the Maps app, and more get a darker, less retina-searing, more battery-friendly theme. After hoping that Android Pie would bring a system-wide dark mode, then being disappointed that it didn't, everyone was cautiously optimistic that Q would finally be "it." We were, maybe, 90% sure, but didn't want to get our hopes up.

Native dark mode in Google Chrome for Windows 10 now available in Canary channel

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

The overwhelming demand for dark modes in apps is beginning to see serious results now, to the point where 2019 could be the year we see system-wide dark modes across all the major platforms. Windows 10 has already implemented this, but it relies on app developers to do their part, which Google is now doing for the Chrome browser.

As reported by TechDows, Google engineer Peter Kasting filed a bug report back in May outlining the need for a dark mode in respect of the Windows 10 light or dark theme choice, sparking a discussion on how best to achieve it.

[Update: Screenshots] Facebook Messenger is testing dark mode, but only in some countries

Tuesday, January 1st, 2019

Facebook has been experimenting with (and subsequently reverting) changes to its Messenger UI over the last few months. All throughout this testing, the most vocal demand we've seen from our own readers was for a dark mode to better supplement the blinding white design. Now, according to famed social app teardown expert Jane Manchun Wong, Facebook Messenger is finally starting to test a dark mode — but only in some countries, and it's still incomplete. 

We don't know the list of supported countries, so YMMV.

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

It seems like apps are only gaining white space lately, but at least one of the world's most popular note taking apps is joining the dark side.

Evernote's new dark theme is easy to turn on by popping open the top left burger menu in the app and switching the clearly marked toggle.
