Google Rebrands Files Go as Files by Google

Google has finally confirmed that dark mode does indeed save battery on Android smartphones.

So, if Google understands the value of dark mode, why are most of its apps not equipped with it yet? That helps save battery life, rather significantly on an OLED panel, because it is lighting up those pixels individually, so the less pixels you need to light up, the less power is being used. On Google Maps, even at full brightness, using night mode can save about 30 percent of the battery. In Night Mode at max brightness, however, the Pixel's draw drops 63 percent to 92mA, while the iPhone stays the same.

The company used its Pixel smartphone for this test in which colour white turned out to be the most power-consuming, followed by Blue, Green, Red and then Black.

The plea for apps that work in dark modes also stems from a mistake in Google's all-white Material Design. The company acknowledged that white is "less than ideal". The official Google Dialer, Messaging, News, and YouTube apps all have configurable dark modes now. Now at 100-percent brightness, it's a much bigger gap, of around 60-percent. Now, according to the latest reports, the tech giant Google just launched an awesome new feature that will simply increase the battery life on Android devices.


It went on to showcase how "dark mode" can make all the difference.

Go to YouTube General Activate Dark theme. More recently, Google has also started to take a friendly approach to dark themes.

Google's data showed an nearly linear relationship between display brightness and power consumption. To address this, we're launching an In-app Updates API. But so far, only a couple have dark modes available, like YouTube and Google News. But battery life is never enough, especially as the battery degrades over time.

Files Go has been rebranded Files by Google, and the updated version of the app is starting to roll out now. One hopes that the transparency of its reporting will extend more fulsomely to China in the future, since almost 1 in 5 people on Earth call it home.
