How to activate the dark mode of Android 10

Although with Android 9 Pie the Mountain View company had already taken its first steps, it was not until Android 10 that he dark mode it has been implemented one hundred percent. And you no longer have to activate this ‘night mode’ in apps manually, because they inherit the configuration that we have applied to the system. So, being so, all we have to know is how to activate, on mobile devices with Android 10, the famous dark mode.

Each manufacturer, depending on the customization layer of their devices, may vary the procedure to follow slightly. However, if we have Android 10 installed on our smartphone, the differences will be really few. This is something that not only affects the Google Pixels, but any model of smartphone and tablet with Android 10. To activate the dark mode, what we have to do is the following:

So you can activate dark mode in Android 10 for all applications

Open the native app Settings, and within it scroll to the section of Screen. In this section the brightness level settings are available and we also have the night light tool. It is where we can let the brightness adjust automatically and where we can also change the wallpaper, among other things. But what interests us is the following point, which will appear as Dark theme. And all we have to do is activate it.

Once this is done, the changes should be applied directly to both the system interface and supported applications. Still, it is recommended reboot device. Why? Because the interface configuration, in some apps, is stored at the cache level. Rebooting will clear all cached data and all apps will run again, so we’ll make sure the dark mode that we just enabled.

Although we have dark mode enabled in Android 10, in some applications it can be activated and deactivated manually. We may want this configuration on the system, and most apps, but in the settings of some of them we can disable it –exclusively for that application- in case we prefer to continue seeing it with a light background. But in this case we will touch the specific settings of the application, thus leaving the ‘dark theme’ activated in the screen settings of Android 10.
