Google Gmail joined the list of popular apps with dark mode features such as Facebook, Snapchat, etc. It’s good news to all Android 10 users and iPhone/iPad users as they can now turn on the dark theme mode on the Gmail app to conveniently use the app at night without complaining of eyes pain.
There are two ways to enable Dark mode on Gmail on your Android 10, and both work perfectly. But, if you want the Gmail dark mode to work independently (without depending on your Android 10 settings), you would have to enable the dark mode feature in your Gmail account settings rather than enabling the general Dark mode in your Android 10 settings.
However, whichever choice you make to enable the dark mode in your Gmail account, here are the choices that are available.
