Not solely will darkish mode make it simpler to function the cellphone at night time with out burning your eyes out, however most high-end handsets feature OLED shows, and darkish mode may help cut back power consumption.

However, Apple and Google applied darkish mode in a different way on the subject of ease of use, and Android followers must watch for Android 11 to roll out to take pleasure in a feature that’s already out there on the iPhone.

But Google nonetheless plans on bringing darkish mode automation to Android in Android 11, in accordance with current findings in the Google Issue Tracker (by way of xda-developers). A Googler responded to complaints from customers to verify the feature can be added in a future Android launch, with out revealing when that might occur.

The first beta for Android 11 ought to drop in March, with the closing launch probably scheduled for late Q3 2020.
