The launch of Android 10 at the start of September, there are still some major Google apps which have but to get a dark theme. The Play Store is now the latest to roll out a dark theme after the last 24 hours saw each the Google app and Gmail.
This dark mode follows the Material Theme Play Store turning into widely available in late August. Following that major overhaul, at present’s night-friendly look is easier to implement for Google. The white background primarily switches to dark gray, like other first-party apps.
This consists of the primary feed, navigation drawer, and bottom bar, while the search bar makes use of a lighter shade. Numerous accent colors have been tweaked and are more muted in hue. This is especially true of the light green when dealing with apps and their Play Store listings, in addition to Play Pass. Red for Play Movies & TV and blue for books get the same sober treatment. In comparison with the previous stark background, apps that make edge-to-edge use of rounded square icons pop.
The identical can be stated of screenshots and other promotional content. Section headers are white, while smaller text and Material Theme icons opt for gray. This dark theme makes browsing editorial content, app listings, and other text-heavy pages within the app easier on the eyes.
The Google Play Store dark theme respects Android 10’s system-level setting and would possibly automatically be applied on your next visit. There are reports of the dark theme enabled with Play Store 16.7.21, which is rolling out right now. However, sideloading the version doesn’t guarantee that the “Theme” preferences will appear in settings, a server-side component is concerned, like other Google Play updates.
