Google's in-app update API gives Android devs new tools for pushing updates

If you are using a phone with Android Pie software, here's how you can manually enable Dark Mode on your device. Heres a comparison done with the first Google Pixel and the iPhone 7. Another chart shows that a 2016 Pixel, with the screen at at maximum brightness, consumes approximately 330mA of power compared to approximately 60mA of power with the display set at maximum black. While black uses the least power and white uses the most, Google found that blue used 25 percent more power than green or red.

It turns out it's something as easy as switching to dark mode whenever possible. Battery life differences between dark and light app designs.

On Google Maps, even at full brightness, using night mode can save about 30 percent of the battery.

It's a great thing for Google to recognize this fact.

New features for the Android App Bundle tool have been announced at today's Android Dev Summit. There is another reason for Google to bring the dark more, i.e. the smartphones with AMOLED panels will be saving battery life while in the dark mode.

Google also notes on its blog that the PHA rate continues to steadily decline on phones that have the newer Android version installed.
