Google's dark theme solution will imporve power efficiency

Surrounded by supporters House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi celebrates a projected Democratic Party takeover of the House of Representatives

So, if Google understands the value of dark mode, why are most of its apps not equipped with it yet?

Just because Google told us how easy it is to "fix" battery life on OLED smartphones, doesn't mean we're getting dark modes from either Google or Apple anytime soon. In simple word this well-known feature, of course, the Dark Mode will simply increase the autonomy of the device, hence, as a result, users will get more use time. Thankfully, dark modes can alleviate the problem and lead to better battery life, and Google wants more devs to add one to their apps.

Dark mode saves lives. However, the color being displayed also affects the power consumption of the display. It shows that at 50-percent brightness, it's only a 14-percent difference, between dark and normal mode. However, it's a long way from here to having the system-wide option (or even the option in all apps) to go dark.

Banes went on to laud the introduction of dark modes, using the recent YouTube update as an example of the power benefits.

Google drilled down further into how different colors impacted power usage. At 100% screen brightness, the dark interface is saving a whopping 60% of screen energy. This report details its efforts to reduce Potentially Harmful Application (PHA) rates on devices and in Google Play. "We've noticed that people across the globe are using it, no matter what type of mobile phone they have or how fast their internet connection is". As well as more closely resembling other Google apps, the redesigned Files by Google has a look that is cleaner and more modern.

The tech giant Google has now revealed that this dark mode has one last important and very efficient function.

The new API gives developers two new ways to update the apps: flexible and immediate. Expect to see dark themes showing up in a lot of your apps and every single Google app going forward. In particular, newer Android versions-such as Nougat, Oreo, and Pie-are more resilient to privilege escalation attacks that had previously allowed PHAs to gain persistence on devices and protect themselves against removal attempts, ' the company explains on its blog.
