Non-Pixel units, in addition to telephones on older variations of Android, are beginning to get entry to darkish mode within the Google App and Assistant.
Earlier this 12 months, MobileSyrup detailed how the Google app’s dark mode setting seemed to be exclusive to Pixel phones. A number of non-Pixel units that we examined, even these operating Android 10, didn’t have the characteristic. Likewise, Google Assistant didn’t have darkish mode as Assistant’s darkish mode is linked to the Google App.
Now, that’s altering. In a Google Search Help post, the Google Search Group introduced that darkish mode is “now available to all beta Android Google App users.” It additionally means that Google app darkish mode needs to be current on units operating older variations of Android. Additional, Google confirmed that the Google app’s darkish mode was beforehand unique to Pixel units operating Android 10.
On prime of that, the publish says that darkish mode has been out there to all beta Google app customers since February 12th.
Whereas our checks, utilizing the identical Samsung Galaxy S10e and OnePlus 7 Professional as earlier than, revealed that the Google app did certainly have darkish mode, a number of stories point out this isn’t the case for a lot of customers.
Android Police, which first noticed the announcement, additionally notes that a number of tipsters with newer variations of the Google app beta don’t have darkish mode whereas others with older variations of the app do. In different phrases, there’s probably some degree of server-side replace that allows the characteristic for Google app beta customers.
So, don’t panic in the event you don’t have the darkish mode possibility but. It needs to be rolling out now, and also you’ll get it eventually. Nonetheless, it’s value noting that you might have to show it on manually. On the OnePlus 7 Professional we examined, regardless of operating the system-wide darkish mode, the Google app stayed in gentle theme by default. I needed to open the app and swap it to ‘System default’ earlier than it modified.
To test when you’ve got darkish mode in your Google app, open it and faucet Extra > Settings > Normal > Theme (needs to be on the backside). If Theme isn’t within the menu, you then’ve not gotten the darkish mode characteristic but. Whether it is there, you possibly can regulate the setting as you please and begin utilizing Google and Assistant in darkish mode.
