With the launch of Android 10 in early September, some major Google apps still have a dark theme to gain. The Play Store is now the latest in rolling out a dark theme after both the Google app and Gmail have seen the last 24 hours.
This dark mode follows that in late August the Material Theme Play Store will be widely available. After that main overhaul, the night-friendly look for Google today is simpler to introduce. The white background, like other first-party apps, mainly switches to dark gray.
This involves the main feed, navigation drawer, and lower bar, while a lighter color is used by the search bar. Different accent colors have been tweaked throughout and are more muted in hue. This is especially true when dealing with apps and their Play Store listings, as well as Play Pass. The same staid therapy is given to Red for Play Movies & TV and blue for books.
Apps that make edge-to-edge use of rounded square icons really pop in comparison to the previous solid background. Screenshots and other promotional content can be said the same thing. Section headers are white, while icons with smaller text and icons with Material Theme are gray. This dark theme makes it simpler for the app to browse editorial content, app listings, and other text-heavy pages.
The dark theme of the Google Play Store respects the system-level setting of Android 10 and could be applied automatically on your next visit. Reports of the dark theme enabled with Play Store 16.7.21 are now rolling out. Sideloading the version does not, however, guarantee that the preferences of the “theme” will appear in settings. A part on the server side, like other updates from Google Play.
