Google also suggested the developers to add a Dark Mode to their application as they will be able to save the battery life on the device and a chart was also displayed by Google at the event that showed at 50 percent screen brightness using a Pixel device. Night mode didn't use any less power on an iPhone 7 with an LCD screen.

Black on OLED screens is known to use less power because the LEDs that make up each pixel are off, whereas displaying white means the LEDs need to shine and consume power.

AMOLED displays do not require the use of a backlight, unlike LCD panels.

After Banes, Alan Viverette then took to the stage to talk about how devs should embrace dark mode and went into detail on how they can implement it.

Bottom line: Dark/Night Modes aren't just good for your eyes; they're also good for the battery life on smartphones with OLED screens. YouTube already has a dark mode, and so does Messages.




Even Google admitted that it was wrong to impose white as the predominant color for Material Design apps. We changed from Holo, which is a nice dark theme, to a white theme instead. This can save up to 43% battery usage during video playback and 60% when paused (with the phone set to 100% brightness).

Results between the two phones were comparable in Normal Mode, though results showed a much greater disparity with Night Mode. Google has added widely requested features in the latest In-app Updates API.

Google is giving developers tools to push users into updating their apps.

Android device makers, led by Samsung, are expected to start releasing foldable phones next year.

Google has revealed its findings about dark mode and how it affects battery life. Android Pie is more thoughtfully designed than past versions of the platform, and Google's interface design is coming together on app and service at a time.
