The Google Home app has turned itself to be very useful over the years when it comes to setting up, managing, and controlling Google Nest, Chromecast, and the Google Home device itself. The app spares the user of a lot of effort, and that’s why it now enjoys a lot of popularity.
But the dark mode has become a true necessity nowadays when we are all spending many hours in front of our smartphones. A dark theme relaxes the eyes and it even makes the battery life to last longer. Many apps feature a dark theme, but it wasn’t also the case for Google Home… until now.
Update 2.27 from August 25 brings a dark theme
If you have a phone that runs on the Android OS, you should see the update available within the Play Store. It will grant a new and pleasant look for your Google Home app with all the old options in their places. This part of the description from Google’s Play Store should be enough for anyone to install the app:
The Home tab gives you shortcuts for the things you do most, like playing music or dimming the lights when you want to start a movie. Control it all with just a tap – and get to the good stuff faster. The Feed tab highlights the most important events in your home all in one place. Here you’ll also find ways to get more out of your devices and improve your home setup.
Google Home is now joining a long list of apps that have already received a dark theme. We can mention WhatsApp, Instagram, YouTube, and much more. Google even added the possibility of activating a dark mode for Android 10 directly from the quick settings menu.
