Google Contacts 3.5.7 provides improved darkish theme switcher in settings

Google Contacts last year was one of many first apps to implement a darkish theme on Android. Version 3.5.7 in the present day provides a greater “Choose theme” switcher in settings that’s extra obvious to the consumer and offers extra granularity.

At launch final November, Google Contacts positioned the “dark theme” switcher within the navigation drawer simply above settings. It was not apparent that it was a button that could possibly be tapped, and in some circumstances it couldn’t be clicked. Specifically, when “Dark mode in device Settings is on” was displayed, customers couldn’t change to the sunshine theme.

The Google Contacts darkish theme switcher in 3.5.7 provides customers extra management over the app’s look. No longer obtainable from the navigation drawer, heading into Settings reveals a brand new “Choose theme” menu beneath Display. The three choices embrace: Light, Dark, and Set by Battery Saver.

The first two gadgets are easy and have up to date parlance, however lets customers use a light-weight theme even when the Battery Saver or Night mode is about to “Always on” in Developer choices. Meanwhile, the final choice is the “auto” choice.

Ahead of Android Q later this yr, that is doubtless how apps will implement darkish themes and modes going ahead. The Google app seems to be engaged on an analogous toggle.

The new Google Contacts darkish theme switcher is broadly obtainable with model 3.5.7 from the Play Store.
