Until now, Android users were only able to use dark mode for individual apps. With the update to Android Q, however, this will now change. All information on the availability of the Dark Mode and how to set it up can be found here.
Android Q: Dark Mode – is the function available?
For a long time, it was not possible to use system-wide dark mode on Android devices. With the update to the new Android Q, it will also be possible for Android users in the future to activate a dark theme that shows not only individual apps, but all bright surfaces in a dark design.
- If you want to use Dark Mode before the official release of Android Q, you can do this by downloading the third beta version of the operating system to your smartphone.
- However, this is only available for selected smartphones and you have to download the version manually from the Google Developer website.
- If you have installed Android Q Beta, please tap the “Developer options” entry in the settings and activate the “override force dark” option there.
Dark Mode: Android Q offers these further innovations
In addition to the Dark Mode, the update to Android Q gives you additional new functions and improvements for your smartphone or tablet. Google has equipped Android Q with a menu bar for better gesture control and made it easier to carry out system updates. Android Q also gives you over 200 new emojis and gives you the option to change the design of the app icons and the font used.
