    I am on an off with Dark Mode. I think once apps adopt the automatic dark mode switching it will be much better. While I love dark mode, i hate being in a dark app then switch to an app that does not support it and have the screen blast me in the face with light
    This^^^^^^lol

    Yesterday evening while doing a Google search, I was presented with an option to try a 'dark mode beta' on the Google App on my phone ( iPhone 8 plus, iOS12.4) I clicked on it and followed very simple instruction to go to settings & select it. It is, like any dark option, a delight to use and much easier on the eyes. I cannot however do the same on my iPad mini 4 yet ( also iOS 12.4) as it hasn't updated ( Both iPhone & iPad show Aug 27 & 28 for Google app last update) Has anyone seen the 'dark beta' prompt in the Google App yet, particularly on iPad? I'll do iOS 13 when it comes out for public download, with the caveat that I will likely hold off to digest feedback for the first few weeks, and get to it at about iOS 13.0.1 or 13.0.2 just to let early glitches shake themselves out. That habit has served me well for major ( yearly) updates so far...

    It's a matter of personal preference but dark mode just makes sense on amoled displays. LCD with dark mode, imagine printing a report with all the unprinted area black and text white!

    Now if they could bring back the "glass" appearance of buttons like the old days. Especially in MacOS. It just looked better.

    Office 2013 had a blinding white mode that could not be turned down. It was hideous. Seemed like Android and iOS followed suite. Hated it.

    I really don't know much about how OLED & LCD differ in resource use or technically but my ageing eyes much prefer dark presentations especially for 'longer' reads. Case in point my Kindle App. My iMac is set up to dark more as well and it's soothing compared to the brght white. How any screen 'gets there' is moot to me, and like 'specs' and 'numbers' re performance, only IMHO a small part of the picture.

    I agree, I'm still trying to figure out why you was invited to a Beta Dark Mode for Google search and I wasn't....LOL

    Since I've been totally unable to find any information anywhere re this trial, I hope it wasn't a scam to spoof my creds... It appeared on the Google App opening page and I'm very pleased with the result. But 'googling' stuff in 'google' has yielded me nothing.

    Yes, I looked/searched for it as well and could not find anything on Google for a Beta dark mode for Google.

    I've heard the term 'server-side' changes as opposed to app updates but I wonder why the hocus-pocus and secrecy re information about any beta trial. All still OK, still unable to duplicate on iPad though either...
