Google Photos update brings long-awaited dark theme
And so the Mountain View giant has started to add the dark mode option to many of its apps. We already reported that a couple apps, including Calendar and Keep have already been updated with the new feature.
XDA Developers reports. The latest version of Google Photos allows users to switch to a dark mode, but we're not sure whether or not this is worldwide roll-out yet.
We do know that the dark theme was spotted for the first time in Google Photos version 220.127.116.11919200, so if you have that installed on your Android phone, you should be able to see it. Otherwise, we'll just have to wait for a wider roll-out, which might come in the coming days or even weeks.
If you have a slightly older Google Photos version installed on your phone, don't bother looking for a newer one in the Google Play Store since this seems like a server-side update, which doesn't require any action from users.
