Google is about to introduce a System-Wide Dark Theme with the arrival of Android Q. However, many apps from the company still lack proper Dark Mode. Gmail is one of these apps, but according to a new report, this is about to change. Google’s App, Drive and Keep already received their Darker treatment, now the search giant is working hard to deliver a proper experience on their popular e-mail app.

According to a report from AndroidPolice, the long overdue dark mode is starting to show up in Gmail App. However, it still needs to be fully implemented. While developers could found it after digging into the code, the app still lacks a toggle to enable and disable the Dark interface. Furthermore, the dark mode seems to be available in settings only for the time being. It currently, pops up randomly whenever it wants.

Gmail is one of the most popular Google Apps for Android device. So it’s a bit curious to see many other G-apps getting Dark UI treatment and Gmail left in the light-blinding the only option. We believe that Google is saving the best for last. Apparently, the dark mode appears in Gmail v2019.06.09. For instance, if you have this specific version installed in your device, you might sporadically enjoy the new implementation. Despite the limitations, of course.

    I wonder how Apple and Google adding dark mode functionalities will affect energy consumption and culture. Maybe goth culture will come back. About time.
