For some users, the Gmail app for Android is getting the dark mode. The dark mode is made so, so that white doesn’t hurt the users who read the news at night.
The dark mode update is coming out since the Android 10 has been rolled out officially. And Android 10 has inbuilt dark mode already present.
To access the dark mode, which you might have not got yet, you need to root your device. After rooting, here is the procedure, as taken from Reddit.
- Go to data\data\com.google.android.gm\shared_prefs\FlagPrefs.xml
- Search for “DarkThemeSupport” (should be one of the first flags) and change to True. Save.
- Force close Gmail and reopen. Theme support should be now there in the General Settings.
Please note, rooting your device might take away your warranty, or damage your device, if you somehow didn’t follow the rooting method.
For dark mode on your device, you need the app version v2019.08.18.267. Either download it from Play Store or get from APKMirror.
