How to get Dark Mode on Gmail App on Android



One of the main highlights of Android 10 is the System-Wide Dark Mode. Turning ON the Dark Mode in Android 10 will also turn it ON in Google apps like the Dialer, Contacts, Photos, Messaging, Notes & more. Now, recently, some Android 10 users started getting Dark Mode on Google Play Store as well, but we don’t know when Google is going to roll it out for all the users.

Now, you can enable Dark Mode on Gmail App on Android if you want since it is now available for Android 10 users. Yes, it is only available for the users on Android 10 at the moment & we don’t know when Google is going to roll it out for previous Android versions like Pie & Oreo.


Like every other Google App, it is a “Dark Gray” Theme instead of the “Pitch Black” theme that most of the users prefer. Still, it is better than that “Super White” theme that we see on some Google apps like Play Store & of course, Gmail. To enable Dark Mode on Gmail App on Android, follow the following steps –

  1. First, make sure that your phone is running on Android 10 & the Gmail app is updated. The minimum version required is 2019.08.18.267044774.                                                                                                                             
  2. Open Gmail App & tap on the “Hamburger Icon” on the top left. Then, go to Settings > General Settings.
  3. Here, you will find a new option named “Theme” on top. Simply tap on it & select the “Dark” theme.                   
  4. If you have enabled “Dark Mode” in Android 10, you may not have to do all this as your Gmail app will automatically get themed in Dark Gray. But still, if you want to go back to the “White” theme, you can do that.

Well, we have no idea when Google is going to roll it out for users on previous Android versions, but we hope the rollout happens soon as we love Dark Mode!
