Google has begun rolling out dark mode for two of its most used apps, Gmail and Maps, for iOS and Android. But… not everyone will get a taste of it.

In a tweet, a spokesperson confirmed the company is “rolling out dark mode for Gmail in the latest update.” The spokesperson added that users with Android 10 and iOS 11 (and newer versions) should see an option to enable it in settings “soon.”

Currently dark mode options are only available for Android 10+ and iOS 11+,” the spokesperson said in a follow-up tweet. “If these OS versions are available for your device we recommend updating in order to use dark mode.”

Indeed, some Redditors have been spotting minor hints of dark mode in Maps in older devices already, like dark-themed buttons.

While most iPhone users shouldn’t encounter any trouble updating to a version of iOS with support for dark mode, that might be an issue for Android users — especially owners of handsets running custom skins — who tend to receive such updates with a delay.

I’m currently using a Huawei P30 Pro, and have yet to receive the update for Android 10, for instance. My colleague Ivan Mehta was able to switch on dark mode for Gmail on his iPhone 11, though. Here’s a look at it:

Google finally adds image blocking to Gmail on the iPhone

Google finally adds image blocking to Gmail on the iPhone The setting will let you block unwanted email tracking . The setting in question, the ability to prevent Gmail from automatically loading attached images, used to be found only on the web version of Gmail. Toggling that setting on allows Gmail to block incoming images, including invisible email trackers hiding in the body of email messages that, in most cases, will tell senders when and sometimes even where you opened the message.

If you have a Google Pixel phone, Gmail will switch to dark mode automatically whenever power saving mode is switched on. The rollout isn't going to be particularly quick, though, and Google has warned that it could take 15 days or even longer for all users to see the new option.

Google introduced a system-wide dark theme with Android 10 update and most of the native Google apps already started getting the new dark theme. Alternatively, on Android 10 users can also enable Dark mode within the settings of Gmail app. The roll out begins today for both Android and iOS

To get the new theme in Gmail on your iPhone, you have to enable dark mode on iOS. Alternatively, head to Settings > Theme from the Gmail app (though that setting doesn’t seem to be available to all iOS 13 users yet).

As is the case with rollouts like that, some users might get dark mode with a slight delay — even if your phone runs the newest version of Android or iOS. So don’t be too discouraged if you’re one of these people.
