Android M dark theme

It’s not full-on theme support, but it’s the next best thing and one of the most requested features Android die-hards have been asking for since Android started moving towards a lighter color palette. As discovered by Derek Ross, it turns out Android M will finally bring a new dark theme when it launches later this year.

Right now, it’s still extremely early and hidden away inside Android’s hidden developer settings. What’s more is it doesn’t really do much but apply a Material dark theme to the settings app, but we imagine developers can implement something similar in their own apps once M rolls out later this year. It’s not pure black, but at least it’s something.
