Google has now confirmed that the Dark Mode also helps increase battery life on phones.
While a system-wide dark mode on Android is not yet available, Google is slowly adding dark colors to some of its apps and parts of the system.
"But this isn't just about that".
At the Dev Summit, Google shared testing data on power consumption in apps with various colors. "And not only that, but screen colour, too", Slash Gear reported late Thursday. Guess which one was better on battery life? Perhaps Google could go with a different shade of white that might be more efficient or go for an Ice Cream Sandwich look for Android Q mostly black backgrounds. But it is trying to help save eyes and battery life by offering Dark Modes on many of its apps, and that trend will continue.
"As you unfold, the app seamlessly transfers to the bigger screen without missing a beat", Stephanie Cuthbertson, director of product management said in a blog post. In Night Mode at max brightness, however, the Pixel's draw drops 63 percent to 92mA, while the iPhone stays the same.
The company studied energy consumptions on phones with white and dark themes and concluded that at max brightness, the dark mode on OLED always wins. Keep in mind that the original Pixel features an OLED display, while the iPhone 7 features an LCD panel.
Google has added the Dark Mode feature to several of its Android apps this year.
For less urgent stuff, the new tools will let the app update in the background, even while it's being used. YouTube in Dark Mode consumes 14 percent lesser battery when compared to the normal mode and at 100 percent brightness, it consumes 60 percent less battery with the Dark Mode. The official Google Dialer, Messaging, News, and YouTube apps all have configurable dark modes now.
