Google Keep now has a dark mode. If Android 10 is running on your device, it will be activated automatically when you turn on the system-wide dark theme. If Android 10 is not running on your device, you must manually enable the dark mode for each app, including Keep. The advantages of the dark mode are a longer battery life, less tired eyes and improved readability.
Not all apps have a dark mode yet. But the Google app ecosystem has recently started adding dark mode in preparation for Android 1
Step 1: Update Google Keep
First you need to make sure you have the latest version of Google Keep for Android. Currently, dark mode is not available for the iOS version of Keep, but we will update this guide if and when it comes. If you need to update Google Keep on your Android device, go to the following link on your phone and tap "Update"
Now open Google Keep. Press the top left hamburger button, scroll down and select & # 39; Settings & # 39 ;. Tap "Turn on dark theme" in the settings screen. This turns on the dark mode in Google Keep.
After you turn on dark mode in Google Keep, you can see below what your app will look like. You can see that we now have a dark background with white text instead of the white background. The status bar at the top of the screen is dark gray, comments on the main screen are dark (unless you change the color manually). The detailed note screen is dark and even the settings are now dark.
