Google: This Awesome New Feature Will Increase Battery Life On Android Devices

With these findings, Android should have more stock apps with Dark Mode and perhaps even update the Material design guidelines to use more efficient shades of color.

This is because OLED screens aren't backlit like LCDs, with a uniform level of brightness lighting up all the pixels. It shows that at 50-percent brightness, it's only a 14-percent difference, between dark and normal mode.

The Verge noted the feature is meant to essentially push users into updating their apps (i.e.it's a fail-safe against those of us who refuse to update out of sheer laziness or, you know, because it requires like two extra steps).

It was discussed how black colours on maximum brightness draw significantly less power than brighter colours, such as white, on full brightness. These are just a handful of reasons why dark Substratum themes populate the Play Store-as most apps out there keep chasing an all-white look, a dark UI becomes the better, friendlier option, and Substratum allows you to go for a dark look on every one of your apps. The company acknowledged that white is "less than ideal".

Google has finally confirmed that dark mode on Android phones uses less power and saves battery life. Even if you're not a fan of Dark Mode, it's an effective way of keeping your OLED phone working longer.

This revelation was made by the tech giant Google itself in its event Android Dev Summit, which is taking place this week. For instance, YouTube users can manually activate Dark Mode by following these steps.

Lately Google have introduced a night mode to their phones to ease strain on the eyes at late hours of the day but it also can decrease power usage by up to 63%.

Today, we're rebranding the app to Files by Google. But so far, only a couple have dark modes available, like YouTube and Google News. With the iPhone X, XS, and XS Max all using OLED screens, there's an opportunity to make good-looking apps that are also good for battery life.

The other option is what Google is calling a flexible update. One hopes that the transparency of its reporting will extend more fulsomely to China in the future, since almost 1 in 5 people on Earth call it home.
