Android 10 has been released to the public and supporting a system-wide dark mode is one of its greatest features. Now, with its latest update, SoundCloud adds support for dark mode on Android.
The latest SoundCloud update for Android, after a couple of weeks in beta, brings official assistance to the new system-wide dark mode.
By default, the latest update, now running through the Play Store, will follow the Android 10 toggle. However, in the settings of the app, the dark theme can also be adapted manually, which means that it should also operate on older versions of Android. Heading to Settings > Theme shows the dark mode options of the app.
Throughout the interface, SoundCloud’s dark mode on Android is, surprisingly, using a dark gray color. Google utilizes this as opposed to a real black background as we’ve seen in apps like Instagram on most of its apps. This color variation should be helpful on OLED displays with general contrast as well as “tearing.”
Hopefully, as Android 10 starts rolling out to more devices, we’ll continue to see more apps picking up a dark mode.
