Dark Theme not Available for Android 6.0 Marshmallow – There aren’t any ensures in life. You might have heard somebody much older and wiser let you know that. And in terms of early Android Developer Previews, the same can be true. Often times, when digging round in the developer settings, individuals will find features and options that by no means make it to ultimate builds. The builds are experimental, we get that. But it’s sad to see that certainly one of Android M’s most promising features – that brand new darkish theme – get axed when it was so close to launching with Android 6.0 Marshmallow later this year.
The Dark Theme really went lacking in Android M Developer Preview 2, an “concern” which was delivered to light on Google Situation Tracker (subject 2657). Apparently this was an intentional move by Google, with a Challenge Member saying the dark theme would not be included in the final M release. Earlier than you freak out, there’s a glimmer of hope. He goes onto to say that the dark theme might be thought of for future releases, however who knows when or even when that will be.
We’re not going to lie, it virtually sounded too good to be true. Android M introduced a handful of really cool new options and it’s sad to see this one get the axe. It’s potential Google could possibly be planning something better, maybe full theme support for apps in the Google Play, but don’t rely on it. Seems like in order for you a stock Android experience, it means you’re simply going to have to put up with a really shiny, white, non-AMOLED friendly UI.
