Google Play Store gets Dark Mode switch, only available on Android 10

Google introduced its system-wide dark mode to Android 10 for the first time. While the Dark mode on Android 10 looks good, once you switch from “System” settings to dark mode, apps, and services such as Google Play will also follow the system settings. However, this “behavior” plagues many users since they need to switch back to Light mode if they want to have the white interface in apps such as Google Play Store. Today, these users can finally rest since a new update is rolling out to add a Dark Mode Switch to the Play Store app.

Gizchina News of the week

The company added a separate dark mode in the Play Store settings page. Thus putting an end to any issues with a forced Light or Dark mode. This definitely is a good improvement and adds more versatility to the Android’s new interface. You can also set the application to follow the systelem settings by selecting the system default option.

Worth noting that this feature isn’t widely available for all users. First of all, it requires Android 10, no surprise. Second, it seems to be available just for some devices. That’s a natural behavior since Google usually rolls out server-side updates for Google Play Store. In the next few days, we expect to see more Android devices getting the new toggle.

    So my phone is a moto z3 from Verizon and I’m still running OS 9 and for at least the last 2 – 3 weeks Google play has been following my dark mode settings. As is typical of Android 9 the phone settings screens are all still that rebellious white but for the better part of 2020 aaaaaand maybe a little before Google’s been finally going full dark for any of their apps that I’ve been running. I’m not sure if this will stay or change obviously but considering it’s lasted much longer than the week or day long periods in 2019 I’m hopeful it’ll stay lol.

    I’ve had it forever and it’s great on my OnePlus 7pro.

    I’ve had darkmode since last year 😆.
    My snap use to be in darkmode till they updated snap and it’s not supported anymore unless you’re rooted.
    And now Android 11 is gonna be out in beta in may-june
    Darkmode is gonna be a lot better
