The dark mode is now available for Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps on Android as announced by Google.
In their words, “Dark theme will intelligently adjust the product interface and user-generated content in ways that can make it more usable in low-light environments and save battery life,” said Google.
According to Google, these apps will automatically adjust themselves when the Android operating system is set to use its dark theme.
However, users will also be able to turn dark mode on and off manually for each of these individual Google apps.
Google said that the feature began rolling out on Monday 6 July, but it could take over two weeks before it is available on all Android devices.
Since the apps will automatically use dark mode when the Android operating system is also using this feature, no action will be required from users to enable dark mode in this scenario.
How to Implement Dark Mode Manually
For those who wish to implement dark mode manually for individual apps will need to do so from within these apps.
To do this, the user will need to navigate to Menu > Settings > Theme > Dark from within the app.
Users will also be able to preview the document they are currently working on in light mode by navigating to More > View in light theme.
Dark mode for Google.com
Just of recent, it was reported that Google has started testing dark mode for its search page on Android devices. According to the report, dark mode tested on Google.com for Android users who navigate to the web page using the mobile Chrome browser was only available under an experimental flag.
Once testing is complete, it will roll out to all mobile users; but no word yet if it will roll out to desktop users or not.
