Weekend poll: Do you want a system-wide dark theme in stock Android?

Sunday, August 5th, 2018

As long as (AM)OLED displays have been included in phones, it seems like the most popular feature request for apps has been dark/black themes. Between the power savings, the attractive bezel-blending, and the simple convenience of just not being blinded at night, everyone from enthusiasts to night owls has enjoyed these gloomy additions. But right now, it's all still a per-app affair that most first-party Google apps don't participate in. But, if it were possible, would you want a system-wide dark/night mode setting in stock Android?

YouTube dark theme now available for some on Android

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

These days, an often-seen feature request for apps (and Android in general) is dark mode. We first noticed that YouTube was preparing to bring one to its Android app in November of last year, but while the web and iOS versions have had it for months, there's only been radio silence on the Android side. However, we're now seeing several reports of dark mode being automatically activated on the YouTube Android app.

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

The Gboard team is hard at work building new features into its app, and the latest update demonstrates just how much effort has gone into it. A few additions are already visible, including spell check, a mini mode for the morse code keyboard, and an adaptive icon. Although, the spell check feature still seems to be disabled. Turning to a teardown, we can see development on Minis, which are basically a variant on Allo's Selfie Stickers.

Text is disappearing from the Google Feed for some, but there’s an easy fix

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

A bug in a recent beta version of the Google app is causing text to disappear from the Google Feed for some users, both on the Android P Developer Preview and Android O. We noticed a similar issue in our teardown of version 8.3. Luckily, the issue is easily remedied in most cases.

Should you find yourself afflicted, try changing your wallpaper to a lighter one. Certain parts of Android change from white to black depending on your wallpaper, and this problem seems to primarily affect users who have a dark theme.

30 Android apps with dark themes that are easy on the eyes

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Personally, I love dark themes in apps. Oftentimes, one of the first things I do is switch to the Night or Dark Mode in every one that supports it. Since I know that I'm not the only one out there that wants my apps to reflect my soul, I gathered together thirty to help some of you get started on your path to the dark side. 

All jokes and edginess aside, dark themes are much easier on your eyes, especially in low-light conditions, and can take a bit of stress off the batteries in phones or tablets with OLED displays.

YouTube dark mode starts hitting mobile, Android expected ‘soon’

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

The much-anticipated system-wide dark mode we were looking forward to (after the arrival of some tantalizing evidence) in an upcoming Android release may not exactly be right around the corner, but there's still ample reason to be excited if you're the kind of user who craves that easy-on-the-eyes look for your mobile apps. For months now we've been expecting a new dark mode to go live for YouTube, and while Google's not quite ready to push the button on dark-mode YouTube for Android, the feature is currently heading out to iOS users.

YouTube v13.01 continues development on dark mode, may enable swipe-to-skip ads, and relocates autoplay setting [APK Teardown]

Friday, January 12th, 2018

YouTube just took a big version jump from v12.49 to v13.01, but you probably won't notice a lot of changes if you're just tapping around. In fact, this update appears to be pretty average for for most of YouTube's releases, which usually include a couple tweaks here and there, and sometimes some interesting material for a teardown – and this update has both. You'll find a new page in the Settings screen for autoplay options, and a teardown turns up some inspiring progress on a dark mode and possibly an adjustment to the ad-skipping experience.
