Dark mode draws 43% lesser power at full brightness compared to "normal mode" in the YouTube app, according to Business Insider. The new Android Material Theme design from Google usually has a bright white background that causes a lot of strain on the eyes of the users in the dark. That's something smartphone-savvy users have long suspected, that dark mode will help conserve battery life. Now, in keeping with its view of the future for the Next Billion Users (Google's capitalization), the app has a new UI as well as a new name.

Google explained to the developers present at the conference how Dark Mode saves energy and presented a chart. In a series of slides, Google showed that screen brightness is not the only major factor in battery consumption; screen colour matters, too. If you're using a third-party keyboard from Swiftkey or going with stock Gboard, you can instantly turn the keyboard to dark mode and save your phone from a significant power draw, especially when the screen brightness is at 100 percent. These have an AMOLED and IPS LCD panel, respectively.

So it really shouldn't be surprising that apps toggled to night/dark mode, which often use more black or dark gray, will reduce the speed at which your phone's battery drains. So if you're serious about saving battery, dark mode on YouTube is definitely worth toggling on.

In 2014, the company began pushing its Material Design style guidelines, which are meant to give Android apps a modern, consistent look across devices, and make the best possible use of available space.

Jack Wallen lists flexibility, Google integration, and open source as reasons why he chooses the Android operating system over iOS for his mobile devices. Now Google is slowly introducing dark themes back into their apps, one by one.

All Pixels since the Pixel 3 come with OLED screens, as do Samsung flagship devices like the Galaxy S or Note, and Apple's iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max.

The new API gives developers two new ways to update the apps: flexible and immediate. Of course, most users will opt for a dark mode anyways.

Today, we're rebranding the app to Files by Google.
