Switch on your Android phone and iPhone in dark mode for Gmail


Yeah, with Android 10, and iOS 13, you'll add a systemwide dark theme through Google and Apple's mobile OSes. But if you only want a la carte dark mode, Gmail can comply with it easily — we 're close to showing you how.

Thanks to products such as Facebook Messenger and hence the Reddit and Slack applications, awareness of dark app modes was already increasing until they were eventually adopted by Google and Apple. Now dark mode is almost omnipresent. 

You will hold a bit of battery life with dark mode and the screen of your phone will be easier in the dark on your eyes. Google added dark mode for the first time to Android

While many of Google's Android apps will adopt a dark theme once you turn it on in overall settings, you'll flip it on independently in Gmail.

1. within the Gmail app on your phone, tap the hamburger icon within the top left.

2. Scroll to rock bottom of the list, and tap Settings.

3. Tap General settings.

4. At the highest of the list, tap Theme.

5. Tap Dark, or if you've already set the dark theme as your system default, tap System default.

If you've set your iPhone to use the new systemwide dark mode (by getting to Settings, then Display & Brightness then tapping Dark) Gmail will apply the theme by default once you receive the update from Google. If you're using iOS 13's Light appearance, however, here's the way to turn it on in Gmail.

1. within the Gmail app, tap the hamburger icon within the top left.

2. Scroll to rock bottom of the list, and tap Settings.

3. Tap Theme.

4. Tap Dark.

You can also enable the dark theme in iOS 11 and 12 by getting to Gmail's Settings and selecting Dark Theme.
