Flipboard was one of the first AI-supported news aggregators, and it's still the first choice for many people. The company only recently tried to insert itself into the conversation by launching a paid video service with partners like Variety, Bloomberg, and The Wall Street Journal, and now it's back with something many people have actually been asking for: A dark mode.

Dark mode finally arrives for Google Analytics (APK Download)

Google introduced dark mode with Android 1o last year, but it's taking a while to update all of its apps with support for the feature. Google Maps started rolling out dark theme just a couple months ago. Now Google Analytics is joining the lights-out league with a dark theme of its own — plus a few other new features.

Google's new light and dark system theme for Chrome OS is around the corner — here's what it looks like

Google's new light and dark system theme for Chrome OS is around the corner — here's what it looks like

A few days ago, I covered the new wallpaper collections that Google published on the Chrome OS Canary channel. I bring this up because while I was writing that article, I noticed that some of the wallpapers in the Elements collection have light and dark variants. I'll admit — I was unsure if this suggested we were getting a dark theme soon, but I knew it was coming thanks to several code changes discovered by Chrome Story. I did not expect Google also to be working on a light theme.

Facebook long introduced dark themes for Instagram, WhatsApp, the Messenger, even Facebook Lite and its website, but so far, its main mobile app hasn't received an official gray-and-black coat of paint. After a year of appearing and disappearing a/b tests, it seems like the company is now almost ready to fully launch the theme.

Chrome OS is getting a dark theme — here's what it looks like

Chrome OS is getting a dark theme — here's what it looks like

Dark mode has been a popular feature request among Chrome OS users for a long time. Although the OS uses a "light" theme by default, it has some random splashes of dark elements, including the launcher and the shelf. Last month, I explained in detail how bringing consistency to the current "light" theme would improve usability, but at the time, there was no information about when a true, system-wide dark mode would ship. Sure, the launcher search bar got a bit darker recently, but what people want is to turn off the lights and minimize eye strain when using their computers over extended periods.

YouTube web’s dark mode can now match your browser’s theme

YouTube enabled dark mode on the web right alongside its big Material Design makeover way back in 2017. But the only way to get it working until now was to toggle the dark theme on or off manually. With more and more web browsers adding native support for these color schemes, YouTube is now tapping into the underlying API to give you the ability to match its website with your browser’s theme.

This is our first sneak peek at dark mode on the Google Nest Hub Max

A couple of weeks ago, a new interface appeared for one of our tipsters on his Nest Hub Max. He showed us the tabbed UI, with more on-device controls and actionable cards, in a short video that had revealed it all — or so we thought at the time. What we're discovering now is that there's a new dark mode coming to the Hub Max (and possibly other smart displays?) and a new tap-and-hold gesture as well.

Newton Mail adds dark mode in first major release since being sold by Essential

The Newton Mail story has had a lot of plot twists over the years. The popular third-party email client announced it was shutting down in 2018, only to be revived by Essential later on. That didn't work out for obvious reasons, but the app returned to life earlier this year and now it's back with a brand-new coat of paint — and some new features as well.

Google Maps dark theme is finally starting to roll out, a year after it was first teased

Google has been teasing a dark theme for Maps for a year now, and after some code surfaced that pointed to traces of a dark mode in version 10.50 of the app, we've now got our first look at a proper, finished night-compatible theme in version 10.51.1.
