Google Rebrands Files Go as Files by Google

Women can be charged up to £,7,000 for giving birth

Google seems to have finally realized the obvious - Dark Mode can help with increased battery life.

This is when Google realized its mistake: it made white the default background color in its Material Design guidelines, which Google admits isnt using the phone to its best efficiency, not when Night Mode could potentially save a good deal of power. To address this, we're launching an In-app Updates API.

"But this isn't just about that. And not only that, but screen colour, too", Slash Gear reported late Thursday.

As Google presenter Chris Banes noted, the screen itself is one of the biggest drains on battery, so the company has been looking at ways developers could minimize the screen's power usage. Dark Mode helps power conservation in devices with OLED screens as the pixels are completely turned off unlike LCDs where power is required to display both white and dark shades.

Rafael Nadal tweets after ankle surgery — ATP Finals
Open after reuniting with Marian Vajda, the longtime coach with whom he had split. "This way I hope to be in full condition for next season".

OK, so it's not exactly "updating as you use" as Google implies, but it's as near as dammit. Heres a comparison done with the first Google Pixel and the iPhone 7. YouTube in Dark Mode consumes 14 percent lesser battery when compared to the normal mode and at 100 percent brightness, it consumes 60 percent less battery with the Dark Mode.

Google also acknowledged that its Material Design initiative uses white as a primary color. Are you a fan of the Dark mode? Starting back in the Android M beta (later Marshmallow), Google included a dark mode toggle that changed the settings and system UI from white to dark gray. Well, despite the announcement, there's no exact time given by Google as to when we will see the API working on Android devices. Google has introduced new tools and features at Android Developer Summit.

Android devices that only download apps from Google Play are 9 times less likely to get malware than devices that download apps from other sources.
