Google Pay gets dark mode

By Xite - August 26, 2019
The dark mode feature on the Google Pay app is only available on smartphones running running Android Pie or Android 10 Beta. The feature cannot be activated directly within the app.

One of the most interesting features coming with the Android 10 will be Dark Mode. And while Google is preparing its app ecosystem for a system wide dark mode, some of the apps including Google Photos, Google Fit and Files have started getting the dark mode. And the new to join the list is Google Pay.

The dark mode feature in Google Pay has been added in v2.96.264233179 app version. The new feature is not yet available to everyone but is rolling out gradually on the Google Play Store. If you don’t want to wait and try the new feature instantly, you can do so by downloading the APK installation file from a trusted source.

You should keep in mind that dark mode on the Google Pay app is only supported on smartphones running Android Pie or Android 10 Beta. And if you have switched on battery saver mode, the dark mode theme will be automatically applied.

Dark Mode is designed to improve readability in night. With just a tap of a button, the interface will be transformed from white to black. The dark mode will also help save battery. According to Google, 21 phones from 13 manufacturers (though one of those is Google itself and another is a division of Oppo) will get the Android 10 Q beta ahead of release.

The list of phones include Asus Zenfone 5z, Essential PH-1, HMD Global Nokia 8.1, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, LG G8, OnePlus OP 6T, Oppo Reno, Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Realme 3 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ3, Tecno Spark 3 Pro, Vivo X27, NEX S, NEX A, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, Mi 9.
