I have become a person who believes strongly in using dark mode on my cellphone. Not because of its advantages in saving battery (even though it is not a sneezing problem), but because I have a habit of reading in low light conditions (or almost no light), and the dark mode is much softer. my eyes.
While iOS and Android have introduced system-wide dark mode to mobile phones, Google is now launching features into the Docs, Sheets and Slides applications on Android phones so you can set each application to be displayed in dark or light mode separately.
Here’s how you set it up for Docs, Sheets, or Slides on an Android phone:
- Open your application and tap the “hamburger” line in the upper left corner.
- Select “Settings.”
- At the top of the page, you will see a link for the theme. Tap on “Choose theme” and select “Dark,” “Light,” or “System default.”
If you use dark mode and need to temporarily view your document in bright mode instead (for example, so you can better see how it will look printed or to other readers), you can do it from within the document:
- Select the three dots in the upper right corner.
- Tap “Look at the light theme.” If you want to return to the dark theme, just follow the same instructions.
Note that if you choose to set your application to a light theme or system default, the option to change it in documents is not available – you can only do this for dark themes.
