Android Q maybe getting a system-wide dark mode. It seems Google would like to present the dark manner in Android Q, which is the upcoming significant release of the Android operating system. The bug tracker post has been made inaccessible for the public outside Google. Each of the secrecy around the post does seem to indicate that the dark mode may indeed be getting introduced with Android 10, or whichever version variety Google ends up calling the Pie successor.

The dark mode was a much-anticipated feature on Android. Ahead of the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop and its Material Design UI, a substantial part of the Android UI and framework used to have darker colors, in accordance with the Holo theme, but that changed with the Material Design. It seems Google is now realizing that dark mode will not just be better for the eyes but should also improve battery life on devices using an OLED screen. Unlike the LCDs, the OLED displays can turn off pixels representing black color, thus requiring less energy to display content.
In a post on Chromium bug tracker looking for dark themed Chrome UI elements, a Google employee Lukasz Zbylut revealed that “Android Q is a licensed (Android) Q attribute” He also added that the (Android) Q team would like to make sure that all preloaded apps support dark mode natively.

The Mountain View-based company has also been silently adding dark mode support on several different default programs in Android within the past year, and it was being expected that Android 9 Pie will deliver the attribute, but that did not happen. Ever since the Android users are cautiously optimistic about the attribute. The bug tracker post seems to add credibility to the belief that Android Q will eventually be the Android variant that brings dark manner to the operating system.
But it is not time just yet for parties because the Chrome bug tracker post was reportedly made back in October 2018 and does not seem to have seen much activity since. So, it is unclear if the dark mode is still on track or Google has quietly changed its programs from the background. We’ll have to wait till the Google I/O 2019 at least to get an official word in Google whether the feature is really coming. The company traditionally showcases a preview of the upcoming Android releases at Google I/O, followed by the full release around October
