Google launches new update to the two-factor authentication prompt on Android, which adds support for dark mode (along with a new material design style), via 9to5Google.
Is this objectively a minor cosmetic update in the big picture? Yes. Is it nice not to be blown away by retinal-cutting white light when your two-factor authentication prompt pops up while you try to log on to something in pitch black? Also yes.
In addition to the less dazzling color, the new update also has a couple of other minor cosmetic changes, including Google’s custom Google Sans font for the user interface, and colorful red and green icons on the login buttons.
The new update seems to be rolling out slowly for Android owners – 9to5Google reports that it is available on personal Google Accounts, but not for those with Google Workspace accounts.
