Google, nevertheless, had also planned to tee up dark mode options for its first-party apps, though dark modes for some biggies (Gmail and the Google Play Store) weren't ready in time for the Android 10 release.

To access the Gmail app's dark mode, Pixel users with Android 10 need to download the latest version of Gmail on their phone.

As you can see, Gmail adopts a dark grey color scheme rather than the OLED-friendly black seen on some apps with dark modes.

Luckily, the theme does not look half baked and covers nearly all the major aspects, judging by these screenshots.

In addition to this option, Google Gmail includes a manual light and dark toggle.

The Dark Theme on Play Store was first spotted on the Pixel 2 XL smartphone running Android 10 by folks at XDA.

If you update and want to look for it, head into Gmail settings and you should see a "Theme" choice at the top, above your "Default notification action".

One of the major changes Android 10 has brought is the system-wide support of dark mode.

The dark mode option simply put turns your white screens to black and your black text to white. One can see that there are still some coloured elements to highlight the labels, inbox and other sections.

The last few Android betas have included a dark theme that did not feature in the final version. However, few apps still don't have the dark mode. While it boasts of several software features that will improve the performance and health of the smartphones, one of the most talked-about features was the new "Dark" mode.
