Google’s Calendar and Keep apps for Android are being updated with a Dark mode — one of the most popular display feature among apps — which will be available in the coming weeks.
Dark mode has gained popularity in the recent years as it creates a better viewing experience for the users in low-light conditions — giving ease to the eyes by reducing the brightness of the display.
Dark mode for the Calendar app already started rolling out last Thursday and the gradual rollout for Google Keep starts today. To get the dark mode for both these apps on their devices, the users will need to update the app to their latest versions.
Dark mode for Calendar app
Devices running Android Nougat and later versions will be able to use the Dark mode feature on the Calendar app. On the Calendar app for Android Nougat, Oreo and Pie, the dark mode feature will be disabled by default but can be enabled in the Calendar app settings.
On Android Q, the feature will be enabled by default whenever the OS is set to Dark mode. This also means that all other apps will be displayed in Dark mode too but if you only want to enable the feature on the Calendar app, that can be done via its Settings.
Dark mode for Keep app
Devices running Android 5 Lollipop and later versions will be able to use the Dark mode feature on the Keep app.
On the Keep app for Android Lollipop up until Android Pie, the dark mode feature will be disabled by default but can be enabled in the Keep app settings. On Android Q, similar to the Calendar app, dark mode will be enabled by default whenever the OS is set to Dark mode or it can also be manually enabled via Keep settings.
