Google has finally confirmed that the dark mode on Android phones uses less power and saves battery life.
"Google revealed some information about how the smartphone uses battery life. They did this on the Android Dev Summit this week, talking to developers about what they can do in their apps to avoid consuming huge amounts of battery life.
" But this is not just about it. This is about the biggest factor in battery usage: the screen brightness! And not only that but the screen color too, "Slash Gear reported late on Thursday.
Dark mode essentially changes the overall color theme of an operating system (OS) or black color applications.
During the presentation, the Internet giants added how dark mode can use 43 percent less power at full brightness than "normal mode" in the YouTube app, which traditionally uses a lot of white, according to Business Insider.
The technical giant gladly acknowledged its failure to encourage app developers to use color-white for their applications, including their own apps.
Since the start of Google's "Material Design" initiative, the company was pushing for the use of color white and encouraged designers to use white as their primary color for all apps and interfaces.
