Google rebrands Files Go to 'Files by Google'

Google rebrands Files Go to 'Files by Google'

Google, for its part, hasn't exactly helped conserve battery life on Android with the Material Design-ification of all of its apps, though. Another neat reveal coming out of the Android Dev Summit, however, is a feature that will allow users to continue using Android apps while they're being updated. In essence, pixels displaying the colour black are actually turned off and are using very little power - if any. Google's device draws 250mA while at maximum brightness in normal mode, while Apple's phone was at 230mA. OLED, on the original Pixel, does consume less power on dark mode compared to the iPhone 7, which has an LCD.

With OLEDs, pixels are essentially turned off when displaying the color black, whereas LCDs keep their pixels lit up no matter what is being shown on the screen.

If you are using a phone with Android Pie software, here's how you can manually enable Dark Mode on your device. The company acknowledged that white is "less than ideal". Google also said that they will be rolling a dark mode for all the Google apps in the future.

On GBoard dark mode saved 21 percent at full brightness. But you won't really find true dark modes for any of them.

Indeed. When I first saw Files Go, I noted that Google should simply include this app in the stock Android software image.

Banes went on to laud the introduction of dark modes, using the recent YouTube update as an example of the power benefits. Again in the Android N beta, we saw dark mode. But so far, really only Google News has added a dark theme, which looks really good on the news app. Google isn't forcing everyone to use the dark mode either, it is offering up the light mode and dark mode and it can change automatically based on the time of day. Expect to see dark themes showing up in a lot of your apps and every single Google app going forward. From a list of options, select the black theme or any darker shade to suit your preference. It's been encouraging developers to adopt the new Material Design guidelines, which provide more freedom than the old version.
