Google has finally confirmed that the Dark mode on Android phones consumes less power and saves battery life.
"Google provided some information on how your smartphone consumes battery life, as you did at the Android Dev Summit this week.
"But that's not" It's just about this. "This is about the biggest factor in battery consumption: screen brightness! And not only that, but also the screen color." Slash Gear reported late Thursday.
The Dark mode essentially changes the general color theme of an operating system (OS) or from applications to the color black.
During the presentation, the Internet giant added how the dark mode at full brightness can consume 43 percent less power than the "normal mode" in the YouTube app, which traditionally uses a lot of white, according to , Business Insider .
The tech giant has reportedly affirmed its mistake of encouraging app developers to use the color white for their applications, including their own apps.
Since the founding of Google's "Material Design" initiative, the company has begun to champion the use of color white, encouraging designers to use white as the base color for all apps and interfaces.
