Dark mode is everywhere. Both Android 10 and iOS 13 have added the feature natively, and many of your favorite apps now include the option. So far, Google has had the mission to add it to all its apps, and we've just received another, Google Photos.
Like all apps in Google's dark mode, this is more of a gray background than a real black. But do not let that stop you. Even with this color you still get the benefits of the dark mode to save the battery. Currently, Google has not integrated a toggle feature into the app. Unlike messages and dialers, this is not so easy. In just a few steps you can enjoy the cool new look of your Photos app.
You need the latest version of Google Photos. Go to the My Apps section of your Play Store app's page menu and see if there's an update button next to Google Photos. If so, click this button to update the photos. I tested this feature in version 4.18. As long as this or a newer version is running in Google Photos, you can use the dark mode.
If the update is not yet available in the Play Store, you can load the new version of APKMirror from the page . This is a trusted site that hosts APK files retrieved directly from the Play Store, so there is no risk of malware, and you will continue to receive updates for Google Photos from the Play Store.
Step 2: Unlock Developer Options
Unlike other Google apps, Photoshop's settings do not switch to Dark Mode. Instead, you must use the night mode in the developer options. For this reason, this feature requires Android 8.0 or later (the switch was added after 8.0).
By default, the Developer Options menu is not available. You need to unlock it first by going to Settings -> Over the Phone and then tapping Build Number seven times in quick succession. For more help, see the following link for detailed instructions on how to enable Developer Options.
Open the Developer Options menu. If the developer options do not appear in the main settings list, open the System submenu, tap Advanced (if any), and select developer options.
Just scroll down the Developer Options menu and select "Night Mode". Then select "Always on" in the pop-up.
Open Google Photos and now instead of a white background a black background. Not only cool, it also saves power, especially if your phone has an OLED panel (eg AMOLED or POLED) in Google Photos ” width=”532″ height=”532″ style=”max-width:532px;height:auto;”/>
