Android P is the current new face of the Android OS market, but it appears that Google has started working quietly to develop the next phase of Android operation with the Android Q OS.
According to a report on 9to5 Mac, the update was first spotted by Googler Lukasz Zbylut in the Chromium bug tracker, which strongly hints at the arrival of the dark mode on the Android Q.
He was quoted to have said that “Dark mode is an approved Q feature.”
What’s most important in this post is that we can note that Google wants to ensure that all pre-loaded apps get a dark mode by May of 2019.
That’s roughly the time Google debuts the first developer preview of a new Android version, so delivering a dark mode in the first Q preview makes complete sense. This setting, apparently, would be found in Settings > Display > Dark Mode.
Dark mode is an approved Q feature. The Q team wants to ensure that all preloaded apps support dark mode natively. In order to ship dark mode successfully, we need all UI elements to be ideally themed dark by May 2019.
However, this update does not only render the entire user interface of an operating system to make it look cool, but it also reduces it harshness on the eyes and, in some cases, reduce power consumption on the used device.
It would be amazing to have this feature come to the Android OS by default, makes total sense and we would begin a countdown to the official announcement of the new Operating system later in the year as this would be a plus to privacy on Android platforms
