Yesterday, February 23, a company representative on the Google Issue Tracker web page posted a comment confirming that a future Android release’ (not particularly Android P) will have the requested Dark Mode feature. The thread started with the request of the same for Google Android P, stating its usefulness, including battery saving aspect and, of course, the viewing convenience. Users following the thread readily believed that it would be included in the next Android update itself, which is 9.0/P, naturally expressing excitement.

Today morning, Google confirmed that it wouldn’t be on the Android P, which followed expressions of disappointment. Instead, a representative posted clarifying that the users will require third-party tools to enjoy the convenience.

If it’s any consolation, we will also not be adding Hot Dog Mode (where all UI elements are yellow and red). – Google representative on issue tracker.

The users didn’t take the Hot Dog mode subtraction well.

As the last company-representation comment said, Google has provided the developers a chance to test the night mode and come up with variations to suit the needs of users.

What we *have* added in a future Android release is a developer-facing setting (via Developer Options) to toggle the -night UI mode qualifier, which will make it easier for developers to create and test apps that implement night mode. This qualifier has been in the platform since Froyo (SDK 8) and globally modifiable via UiModeManager since Marshmallow (SDK 23); however, there was never an explicit toggle made available anywhere in Settings.

This functionality was already there in Android, one like Twitter has. The only difference now is that it has become easier to access in Settings. This will help more apps to take advantage for when a third-party app is added to the device favoring the dark mode.

This is pretty disappointing as far as the users’ hopes are considered. An entirely new app for enabling the dark mode? The developers better come up with various soothing shades as the last satisfaction regarding this.

While there’s nothing you can do to have the dark mode right in the next Android release, tell us in comments below if you have any favorite shade for the developers to implement. Keep following this space to get the next update on Android P as it surfaces.
