The Verge noted the feature is meant to essentially push users into updating their apps (i.e.it's a fail-safe against those of us who refuse to update out of sheer laziness or, you know, because it requires like two extra steps). According to Google's research, colors displayed on the screen can affect the phone's battery draw, and a night mode (either dark gray or AMOLED black) can go a long way to save battery. In the Dark Mode, the battery consumption was reduced to 63 percent on the Pixel to 92mA. Heres a comparison done with the first Google Pixel and the iPhone 7. That's not a big difference, but it does make a difference.

The tech giant reportedly acknowledged its mistake of encouraging app developers to use the colour white for their applications, including its own apps. Material came about three years ago. Unsurprisingly, black is the lowest, while white, which is featured prominently across Google's apps and the Android OS, has the highest draw. "We kind of shot ourselves in the foot slightly in terms of power", Banes said. So if you're serious about saving battery, dark mode on YouTube is definitely worth toggling on. And what is perhaps even more interesting here is that normal mode at 50-percent brightness is 93mA, while dark mode at 100-percent brightness is 96mA, showing that white mode at 50-percent brightness is nearly the same as dark mode at full brightness. Another reason is that Android models with AMOLED panels save a lot of battery life when Dark Mode is enabled. Developers will also be given tools to help steer you towards installing more urgent updates, with in-app notifications to run updates immediately. Even using a dark theme in Gboard can reduce power consumption significantly, by up to 21%. Originally created to help Android users in certain countries that do not have a lot of storage on their mobile devices, the app was quickly adopted worldwide.
