Today, Google officially announced that the “Dark theme” mode for its Play store app is now available for all Android smartphones. The release of this feature was staggered thus it was not readily available for many smartphones. Presently, users can check for the Dark theme setting option by navigating to Play Store settings and then to “theme”.
As for Android 10 users, the system comes with a global dark theme. Thus, you can simply choose “system default” as the option apart from Light and Dark. If your settings on system default, it allows system-wide Dark or Light theme option to apply to Play Store as well. If you are on other Android versions where the “default theme” option is not available you can choose from Light or Dark theme options.
Over time, it appears that many users seem to prefer the dark theme mode. It does not only protect your battery consumption, it is also more eye-friendly. As of now, all Android smartphones have this dark theme option in their Play Store settings. You can check it out and let us know if you got it.
