Dark mode is officially available in Google desktop applications

Google announced on Monday that it supports Dark Mode in its desktop applications: (Docs), Sheets and Slides, for the Android operating system.

"We are working to improve documents, spreadsheets, and presentations from Google on Android by supporting the dark appearance," the US technology giant said in a post. "It will intelligently adjust the dark look of the product interface and user-generated content in ways that can make it more usable in low-light environments and save battery power," she added.

And Google said: All Android users will be able to reach the dark appearance within the next two weeks. Users can activate the dark theme in documents, spreadsheets or presentations by going to the settings of the application in question. The company also added that the applications will use the system appearance automatically, which means that if the device uses the dark theme, the user will not have to manually activate it in these applications.

Google had promised last year to support the dark appearance feature in all of its applications, and since then it adds the feature to a number of applications, including: the Google search application, the Gmail application, and the Google Calendar.


It is noteworthy that support for the dark mode has become over the past years the general feature of most applications and services in mobile devices running Android, iOS, and even personal computers operating system Windows 10.

The dark mode aims to comfort the user's eye, especially at night hours, and has useful features for devices, as it saves battery power, especially in devices that use OLED screens.
