Google has been adding Dark theme to most of its core Android apps. This setting changes the usual dark text on a white background to white text on a black or gray background. The idea behind Dark theme is to protect the eyes of users and bystanders from the retina melting white background at night or in a dark room. And with a black background, Dark theme can also save a little battery life on devices using an AMOLED screen. That’s because these displays create the color black by turning off pixels in the appropriate area of the screen. Pixels that are turned off do not draw power from the battery. And there are some who just prefer the Dark theme look.
This is what Dark theme will look like on Gmail when it finally hits your phone
When Dark mode does come to your Gmail app, those running Android 10 will have three options to choose from. They can select to have the app run Light theme (white background, black text), Dark theme (black background with white text) or follow the system-wide setting chosen by the device owner.
