Finally, Gmail For Android Is Getting Dark Mode And Is Now Rolling Out. While a dark mode is included throughout the system with the Android 10 update. And Google has added functionality to many of its Android apps. There is still a key app that Android users would like to see with white text displayed on a dark background. That app is Gmail. According to some Reddit posters, it seems that Google is starting to launch a server-side update of Gmail. This update will be with an option in Dark mode.
When you reach the phone, you will see a trio of options: light, dark and system default. First of all, however, you need to make sure you are running the latest version of the Gmail app. And that is 2019.08.18.267044774. While some Android users with the latest version of Gmail have not received the update that contains Dark mode, they report that their Gmail widget now automatically appears in Dark mode. You can see if the option has reached the Gmail app by opening it and tapping the three-line burger menu icon on the left side of the search bar. Scroll down and tap Settings => General Settings.
Dark mode to its apps to protect users’ eyes from the burning
Google has included Dark mode to its apps to protect users’ eyes from the burning white background in many Android apps. These particular apps are known to have white patches that can cause blindness and eye fatigue. Also, at night or in rooms with lights off, the white background in many applications can be a distraction for other people in the vicinity or in the same room. It can help prevent this from happening since it reverses the use of black text on a white background and offers white text on a black or dark gray background.

If you don’t have the latest version of Gmail, you can find it here in the Google Play Store. Once again, there is no guarantee that this will activate the Dark Mode option. Once this reaches everyone, it will be another reminder that Google tries to follow the words of the great philosopher Mick Jagger, who once said: “You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, you get what you need”.
