Gradually all Google applications are getting their dark mode and one of those that does not have it by default is Gmail. The arrival of Android 10 is closer than ever and in the Pixels, activating the dark mode for the whole system, you can see most of the Google applications in this format that allows us to save energy with AMOLED screens. The dark mode has not yet completely reached Gmail but there are already some parts of the application that are in dark format.

The first part that Google has added to the dark mode is the Android widget, that you can put on your desk to check the inbox without needing to enter the mail. And to prove it, you will have to activate the dark mode on your Android mobile but… How is it done?

How do I activate the dark mode in Gmail?

The process is easier than it seems, the only problem is that you will only have access to the dark mode in the widget. The application will continue to appear white but you will have it activated by the time, in a future update, put it. The latest APK not only adds the gesture to easily change accounts, but also brings this dark mode.

Once installed on your mobile, you will have the dark mode parts activated in Gmail on your phone but to see them in their night format there is no option within the app. The process involves activating the dark mode on your phone and not only works in Pixels. We have tested on Huawei, Xiaomi and Samsung phones with Android 9 Pie, with the dark mode activated, and it has worked perfectly.

How to activate the dark mode on Android phones?

The vast majority of customization layers have this option on their phones. The process is usually similar in all. We go to the Phone Settings (not the application) and look for the Screen section. Once in it we will find an option called Dark Mode. In some phones it may appear as Theme (in the case of Pixels) and in others we can even find this option in the Battery option and not the screen.

When we activate this option we can already enjoy the dark mode of Gmail and also the other Google applications in a dark format that allows it to be activated in this way.
