Google Wants Developers To Use Dark Mode, To Save Battery Life

Women can be charged up to £,7,000 for giving birth

During this weeks Android Developer Summit, Google spoke to app developers about what they can do in order to yield the best battery life for the users device.

The Verge noted the feature is meant to essentially push users into updating their apps (i.e.it's a fail-safe against those of us who refuse to update out of sheer laziness or, you know, because it requires like two extra steps). If you have a smartphone with an OLED display (like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, LG V40 ThinQ or Google Pixel 3) and use a black background on that phone, you will really notice the difference in battery life. But in Dark Mode, battery consumption on the Pixel drops 63% to 92mA. Night mode didn't use any less power on an iPhone 7 with an LCD screen. It also makes it easy to swap in different colors.

Guess which color we've been pushing you towards over the past couple years. The report states that the PHA rate has been on a steady decline year on year, and it averaged a lower PHA rate of 0.08 percent in 2018's first three quarters.

The Dark Mode basically reverses the color theme of an operating system (OS) or applications by replacing the white background with black. "We kind of shot ourselves in the foot slightly in terms of power", Banes said. For instance, YouTube users can manually activate Dark Mode by following these steps.

Google explained to the developers present at the conference how Dark Mode saves energy and presented a chart. Google's device draws 250mA while at maximum brightness in normal mode, while Apple's phone was at 230mA. Dark Mode helps power conservation in devices with OLED screens as the pixels are completely turned off unlike LCDs where power is required to display both white and dark shades.

Google is giving developers tools to push users into updating their apps.

Android originally had a dark Holo theme UI but then Material Design came along and Google white-themed all the things. Battery lives, that is.

Google has introduced a new developer tool aimed at encouraging Android users to update apps to the current version though in-app prompts.
