The dark mode of your phone is a polarizing function. Some people like it, and others prefer the more traditional, clear background. But even if you prefer to stay in the light, you should consider the benefits of using the dark mode. According to Google it saves battery life and reduces eyes when using your phone in a dark environment.
Last year was a good year for dark mode enthusiasts. In August, Google released Android 1
0 with a real dark mode, and then Apple released iOS 13 the following month with its own dark mode.
Below are apps that I have found that support the dark theme of Android 10 or have their own dark mode setting, along with where you can find it.

You can also go to the app settings, followed by General settings > Theme and select Dark from the list.
The official Android Messaging app has many features, but the app also supports automatic switching in addition to the dark theme of Android 10, as well as a dark mode that you can turn on manually if you do not have Android 10. t must also search the settings to enable it. Open the app, tap the three-dot menu icon in the upper right corner, and then turn on the dark mode.

Feedly dark mode is found by opening the side panel and then selecting Night mode. It is a nice touch, especially if you spend a lot of time reading different news stories and articles. You must manually switch to night mode even if your phone uses Android 10.
