Over a few months back, Google has been steadily adding dark mode to its apps. One of the firsts to receive the update are the likes of Google Messages, News, Contacts and many others.
Now, Google announced that it has added yet another two of its apps to get the dark mode. Adding to the growing list of apps to get dark mode on Android are Google Calendar and Google Keep.
Google Calendar and Google Keep to get dark mode on Android
It is official, Google Calendar and Google Keep have become the latest Google apps to get dark mode on Android. This allows users to save smartphone’s battery life with just a press of a button.
Or perhaps users could just simply enjoy a darker aesthetic which is far from what is used to on the platform.
Dark mode on Google Calendar will be available on devices that run Android Nougat and above. If you want to enable dark mode on Google Calendar, you need to enable it in your Theme sub-menu in Settings. Go to Settings > General > Theme.
Meanwhile, Google Keep will be available on devices that run on Android Lollipop. Enabling the dark mode on Keep is as easy as a one-button switch. Head on to your Settings then Enable Dark Mode.
When will it be available on Android devices?
When Google announced Android Q’s system-wide dark mode feature called Dark Theme, the tech company said it will update its first party apps to support it. Now, the updates on Google Calendar and Google Keep could not be anymore than a good timing.
Both apps will automatically go into dark mode once Android Q is set to Dark Theme. Google Calendar will also automatically set into dark mode when you device enters battery-saving mode.
The updates on Google Calendar and Google Keep have started rolling out to Android devices in the course of two weeks. For Google Calendar, the update has already started to roll out on May 16th, while Google Keep started to roll out on May 20th.
The two app now joins numerous Google apps that have already updated with support to dark mode. Unfortunately for Apple users, there is no word yet on when the feature will be coming to these apps in the iOS platform.
