Android Messages Receives Minor Update…Holy Sh*t There's a Dark Mode!

As with the new YouTube dark mode, Android Messages users can eliminate the bright white background, instead switching to a darker interface that is easier on the eyes over longer periods of time.

Google is doing this thing with their apps that receive updates, where they've hilariously convinced everyone to call new UI changes "Material Design 2". And now Android Messages is seeing a nice change of scenery, too.

Once Dark Mode is enabled, you'll notice it's not completely black, but a rather dark grey, with bubbles from your messaging partner in a slightly lighter shade of grey, while your bubble is in Blue.

Atlantia shares were up 6% on Thursday's close by 0900 GMT, still down nearly 22% from their level the day before the disaster. The dead also include children, one as young as eight, and three Chileans and four French nationals.

Look for version 3.5.048 of Android Messages, which will hopefully come soon to all. The new mode is available in Android Messages version 3.5, which brings the same Material Design that recently arrived on Google Phone and Google Contacts.

Android Messages for web is here. The feature uses your recent messages to show you relevant suggestions. However, Google assures users that it doesn't store the messages to offer suggestions. The update to Android Messages also means there is a new font, and the app will now automatically default to a blue background for your sent text messages.
