Google Pay starts to get a dark mode ahead of the official Android Q launch

The dark mode is not entirely black, instead, it has shades of grey so that it won't strain eyes.


Prior to the official launch of Android Q aka Android 10, Google has reportedly introduced a new dark mode for Google Pay. This mode is available for all smartphones running Android Pie operating system or above.

As per a report by Android Police, the dark mode is part of version 2.96.264233179. Reportedly, when the app is updated to the latest version, it will automatically switch to dark mode when the smartphone is on battery saving mode.

This mode doesn't give a completely black theme, instead, it offers a deep grey theme. But this shade of grey will not strain your eyes, thus serving the purpose of the dark theme.
