Google finds Night Mode really helps battery endurance

To combat this, Google is urging developers to use darker colours in their apps so as to reduce the power strain on smartphones. In simple word this well-known feature, of course, the Dark Mode will simply increase the autonomy of the device, hence, as a result, users will get more use time.

Google backed up the battery life benefits of "dark mode" on operating systems and apps in a presentation during the company's Android Dev Summit on Thursday.

Google explained to the developers present at the conference how Dark Mode saves energy and presented a chart.

Using an OG Pixel with an OLED panel, Google engineers ran some tests to see how much display brightness and color affects battery life. Means brighter the screen the rate of battery consumption is fast. However, the colours rendered on the display also have a lot to do with power efficiency and Google went on to show the power draws that every colour on the spectrum does on the battery at full brightness levels.

Google did admit that they've been pushing Material Design with an emphasis on white backgrounds on Android. For instance, YouTube users can manually activate Dark Mode by following these steps. Like Huawei, for instance, was already dark, but it has now added a truly black theme for devices with an OLED display, like the P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro. As well as more closely resembling other Google apps, the redesigned Files by Google has a look that is cleaner and more modern. It's especially noticeable when using mobile devices in dark environments. When an OLED screen displays black, it doesn't really display anything. Now, they seem to be actively advocating for developers to introduce dark modes on their apps, too.

The tool, very appropriately dubbed the Google Play in-app update API, gives developers the ability to display dialog boxes in unupdated Android games or apps that either encourage players to update their copy to the latest version and allow them to do so while the app is still running. Well, hearing this report is a good news for most of us. Google routinely bans sketchy apps from its store, but they remain available via sideloading, and their makers don't stop advertising the product just because it's unavailable from the approved channels.
