Android 9 Dark Mode

So i've been reading about the new dark mode which should be in Android 9.

For some reason it's missing on the xz3. Is there a way to still turn this on? Or otherwise a way to get the sony developers to put it back in?

Re: Android 9 Dark Mode

Hello everyone, I apologize for the late reply!

Currently, Xperia devices running Android Pie do not support Dark mode. We cannot comment on plans to implement Dark mode in the future. However, individual third-party apps can still support Dark mode.

Neither does Sony warrant or guarantee the performance of content downloaded or acquired in other ways through such applications. Similarly, Sony is not responsible for any damage or reduced performance of your device attributable to the transfer of third-party content.

I hope that answer your questions and I will of course forward all your feedback regarding this! Slightly smiling Face

How to enable it for contacts? I only was able to use it for messages.
BTW In messages it is more like "grey mode", not pure black, what would be the best option, imho.

Re: Xperia xz3 dark mode

Unfortunately, there is no system-wide dark mode. Some individual apps can be set to dark background, but that's it.

I'm also waiting for this, especially with the OLED-screen it would save battery.

Bylo by dobré kdyby sony v dalších aktualizací dalo tmavi režim. 

It would be good if Sony in the next updates gave the dark mode.

The is system wide under developers settings there's night mode opition and can be toggled on or off ,but it seems like even if you toggle it on or off makes no difference so why  have the option but not surport the opition Google feeds stay white the should be grey if night mode on developers settings is on and quick settings should go white if it's set for off , the settings is there but not surported

Re: Xperia xz3 dark mode

Night mode and dark mode are worlds apart.

Dark mode needs no explanation.

Maybe it is interesting on an OLED screen to save power.

Night mode could do by renaming it to twilight mode.

Night mode filters the blue out of the white which makes the screen more yellowish and peacefull for the eyes.

I have night mode switched on all day.
