Gmail has (finally) released a much awaited Dark Mode

Yes. Gmail’s Dark Mode is finally here.

Google has announced its coveted email client can now be used with the lights turned off, so you’ll be able to sort through a cluttered inbox in Dark Mode – making the app easier on tired eyes.

What’s more, the fresh aesthetic should also help boost battery life on smartphones with an OLED panel – perfect for anyone who checks their emails far more than they’d care to admit.

As is the case with most Dark Modes, Gmail’s design uses black and dark grey tones instead of the usual light greys and bright whites found in the email client’s interface. Other colours are preserved but toned down.

Gmail’s Dark Mode started rolling out for iOS and Android earlier this week, although Google has said it could take up to 15 days for the feature to appear on all devices. That means those who aren’t able to access the feature immediately shouldn’t worry.
