With the arrival of Android 10, Google brought to its millions of users one of the most desired features, Dark Mode in its entire interface. After a long period in which we saw several Apps from the company receiving this new “color palette”, it was finally the turn of the operating system interface. However, a small (but important) option fell by the wayside.
Despite the arrival of Dark Mode on all smartphones running Android 10, users still did not have an option to activate this dark color scheme at specific times of the day. However, new information reveals that Android 11 will correct this absence.
Thanks to the availability of the first version Developer Preview Android 11, you can now install it on some smartphones, allowing “experts“discover some of the secrets that have not been revealed by Google.
New Dark Mode management option will be implemented on Android 11
There is similarity to what Samsung did in its One UI, Android 11 will finally present a new option in the Dark Mode settings. In the same way that Android smartphone users can manage “Reading Mode”, also with Dark Mode they can choose between three operating options.
The default option does not apply any customization, leaving this mode permanently active. Then, you will be able to choose an automatic switch that activates Dark Mode at sunset and turns it off with the southern sunrise. Finally, you will still be able to select personalized times, in order to perfectly adapt to your use.
Dark Mode is fantastic, but not always the perfect option for everyone!
Despite being a practically unanimous opinion, Dark Mode may not always be the ideal option for all users, depending on the time of day. For example, for some users it is more pleasant to use normal mode during the day and only have Dark Mode active at night. This is because, it is usually at that time that they are in environments with less luminosity.
However, until now this task of managing Dark Mode is a real pain, and the only practical alternative is to install external applications that do this management. Contrary to what Google did, some manufacturers decided to implement this type of management in their interfaces, which allows the user to define when he wants to have Dark Mode active.
