Most of the mobile apps by Google have received dark themes, but some of its apps are still standing in the queue and waiting for their turn to get the dark mode. Yes, Docs, Sheets, and Slides are among those apps that didn’t receive a proper dark mode yet.
Three Google Apps on Android are Getting Dark Mode
According to 9to5google:
that’s about to change in the not-so-distant future. After decompiling the latest version of these apps that Google recently uploaded to the Play Store, they have discovered traces of a dark theme that hasn’t been enabled in the apps.
The code lines show that Google is preparing to add dark mode to Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
