Google finally admits that Android phones save battery on Dark Mode

Google has officially confirmed that Android phones use less power and saves battery life in dark mode.

Google shared some of the information on how the smartphone spends its battery, at the Android Dev Summit, where they spoke to developers on what they could do in their apps that would help in avoiding the consumption of battery life.

"But this isn't just about that. This is about the biggest factor in battery consumption: screen brightness! And not only that but screen colour, too," Slash Gear reported late Thursday.

With the Dark mode, the overall colour theme of the OS or the app changes to black.

According to Business Insider, during the presentation, Google added that the dark mode used 43 percent less power on full brightness when compared to the normal mode in the YouTube app that tends to consume a lot of white.

The tech giant reportedly acknowledged its mistake of encouraging app developers to use the colour white for their applications, including its own apps.

Since the inception of Google's "Material Design" initiative, the company had been pushing for the use of colour white, thus, encouraging designers to use white as their primary colour for all apps and interfaces.
