The Gmail app for Android is finally starting to support dark mode . Multiple users are reporting that the dark theme settings are appearing. Once the Gmail dark mode rolls out more widely, we’ll let you all know. The version of the Gmail app that has the dark mode is rolling out on the Google Play

Google has started officially rolling out a Dark Mode for its Gmail app on Android , but it's not available for everybody just yet. Like with other Google apps, there are three UI options in the Settings menu on Gmail now: Light, Dark and System Default.

If you spend a lot of time staring at screens all day (and all night, for that matter) many of you are no doubt glad to increasingly have a dark mode option become a more familiar part of your smartphone experience.

Personally, Gmail is one of the apps I’m glued to for most of my waking hours, so it’s certainly welcome to see that a dark mode for Gmail is finally rolling out. The caveat is that this is for the Android version of the app only, and you’ll need to be running Android 10.

Android 10, released more than a week ago, has its own system-wide dark mode. Google, nevertheless, had also planned to tee up dark mode options for its first-party apps, though dark modes for some biggies (Gmail and the Google Play Store) weren’t ready in time for the Android 10 release.

Gmail’s dark mode begins rolling out today

  Gmail’s dark mode begins rolling out today It will turn on automatically if you use dark mode on Android 10 or iOS 13To check if dark mode has been made available to you, open Gmail, click settings, and you’ll see a new option called “Theme,” and within that, dark mode can be switched on.

Google is rolling out the dark theme to Gmail for Android via a server-side update. As noted by several users on Reddit (via 9to5 Google ), Gmail is picking up the dark theme following the latest The theme option itself is listed at the top in the general settings, and the dark mode has a dark gray

Thankfully, we're seeing many reports (including several of our own) that the Dark Mode for the YouTube for Android app is here. YouTube for Android was said to be getting a Dark Mode way back in March. It started rolling out to iOS devices on that day, but Android was given the dread

Per XDA Developers, the most current release of Gmail for Android comes with a dark mode baked in that puts white text atop a pleasant, dark gray shading. You’ve actually got three shading options — a light and dark version, as well as the system default. The compose screen and messages screen also adjust to the dark mode as well.

One reason we might not have seen a similar dark mode roll out yet for the Play Store app has to do with the interface that relies in large part on the presence of all the app icons, but that’s just a guess as to why that one still hasn’t arrived. Nevertheless, it is certainly welcome to see another key app adjust and offer users the choice of an option that’s easier on the eyes.

Speaking of Android 10’s system-wide dark mode, we’re also now a week out from the release of iOS 13 which will likewise finally bring a system-wide dark mode to iOS devices. That’s something Apple teased earlier this year in its iOS walkthrough, as we noted here.
