Google in 2017-2018: “Whiten all of the issues!” Google in late 2018-2019: “Darken all of the issues!” Issues have advanced from the attention-searing white and each few days, we see a brand new app embrace its darker aspect and supply a black or darkish gray mode for delicate eyeballs and AMOLED shows. The newest to check the waters of a darkish mode is Google Drive.

Proper across the time Drive acquired its new Materials replace final month, we obtained a few ideas of a darkish mode. We knew Drive was engaged on it, however thought its look for some customers may need been a bug or unintentional rollout, as the bulk did not have it and there was no solution to activate it. However beginning yesterday, extra customers appear to be getting the darkish theme. Our tipsters have it, and so do a number of individuals on Reddit.

As you possibly can see, all the interface is flipped round and all menus have been correctly themed. Notably, there aren’t any points with textual content readability like we noticed with Google Pictures’ darkish mode.

Since this can be a server-aspect change, you’ll solely get this when Google deems your system worthy. Your odds are improved for those who’re operating the newest v2.19.132.06, which you will get from the Play Retailer or APK Mirror, however nothing is assured. I’ve that model and all I see is the darkish splash display earlier than Drive opens (utilizing Battery Saver to set off it on my Pixel 2 XL on Q beta 2) then the app switches to a white interface.
