Some users are getting Gmail for Android’s dark mode [Update: rolling out to everyone]

Get ready to crush emails in the dark

Now that Android 10 has dropped with its new Dark Theme, Google is finally bringing the shadowy interface to Gmail on Android.

It’s being reported that the Gmail dark mode is rolling out via a server-side update and it functions very similarly to the dark mode in other Google-branded apps.

That means you can set it to be always dark, always light or to match your system theme.

So far none of our phones in the office have the update, but if you do, it should be the first option within the ‘General settings, ‘ according to 9to5Google.

Update 24/09/2019: Google has shared a blog post noting that both iOS and Android devices should get the update today
