If your phone is running Android 10 or higher, you can simply turn on the system-wide, dark design. If your device is running before Android 10, you'll need to manually turn on dark mode for each app, including Google Calendar. The benefits of dark mode include longer battery life, less eye strain, and improved readability.
Google Calendar is a key component of many users' workflows. The ability to turn on Dark Mode for the Google Calendar app brings us closer to a full dark mode. Android users are starting to get more darker modes in our favorite apps. It will not be long before dark mode is a standard feature of all apps.
Unfortunately, if you're using an iPhone, the dark version in the iOS version of Google Calendar can not just be switched. We'll update this article with instructions when Google Calendar gets dark mode on the iPhone.
Open the Google Callander app . Press the hamburger menu at the top left of the screen. Scroll down and press the "Settings" button. Then select "General". Find the "Theme" button here and click on it.
A Select Topic dialog appears. To make Google Calendar always dark, select the "Dark" option. There is also an option for "Set to Battery Saver Mode" (or "System Default" if you are using Android 10+). If you select "Set to sleep mode", the dark mode is automatically activated when your phone is in sleep mode. In terms of "System Default," this option enables the dark mode when the system-wide dark mode of Android 10 is enabled.
Once dark mode is turned on, the entire Google Calendar app will have a dark theme. The highlighted colors may be different, the background and the navigation bar are now dark gray. When the dark mode is on, you can extend battery life and reduce eye strain.
