Yes, the well-known dark mode feature will now save battery in a very important way and that can guarantee more time of use to the users. The Dark Mode for long has been associated with better battery life on devices, especially mobile devices.

Google seems to have finally realized the obvious - Dark Mode can help with increased battery life. And now that Google knows, and admits, that dark mode is better for battery life, it wouldn't be a big surprise to see Google adding dark mode to more of its apps, and even system-wide in Android Q next year. At maximum brightness, white drained the most battery life. Well, Google has shown that using night mode on YouTube can consume 60 percent less power at max brightness.

Dark mode is an option that changes the overall colour theme of an operating system or app to the colour black.

There aren't many popular third-party apps that support dark theme (are you listening Facebook?), but Twitter isn't one of them.

It is worth noting that Google has gradually white colour-themed Material design to nearly all of its major services including YouTube, Google Assistant and Chrome browser.

Android devices that only download apps from Google Play are 9 times less likely to get malware than devices that download apps from other sources.

What's interesting is the comparison between the original Pixel, which uses an OLED screen, and the LCD-sporting iPhone 7.

Google drilled down further into how different colors impacted power usage.

Additionally, developers can now full-screen messages asking the user to update the app immediately, unless they're prevented by a metered connection or the battery is too low.

Google has also announced that in less than a year, the app has a whopping 30 million monthly users, which I am sure is earning Google some $$$. In particular, newer Android versions-such as Nougat, Oreo, and Pie-are more resilient to privilege escalation attacks that had previously allowed PHAs to gain persistence on devices and protect themselves against removal attempts, ' the company explains on its blog.
