Google has been on a months-long quest to bring dark mode to its vast armada of Android apps in the run-up to the Android 10 release. It isn’t stopping yet, as Gmail is the latest app to have received the eye-friendly theme.
According to 9to5Google, Gmail’s dark mode has arrived via a server-side update rather than an app update. The outlet says you’ll still need version 2019.08.18.267044774 of the app, but this doesn’t necessarily guarantee that you’ll get the theme.
The app allows users to switch between light, dark, and the system default. The latter presumably means it will follow whatever system theme is currently activated on your device. You can check out a few screenshots below, courtesy of 9to5Google.
