Instagram and Google Photos random and intermittent dark mode

2020-01-05, 20:36 PM

On G5 Plus and Android 8.1:

 

I prefer dark mode for all of the apps I have. For Instagram and Google Photos,d mode is not an option unless you have a more recent version of Android. For the past few months dark mode work for both of these apps on my phone, but since there are no options to turn it on, I'm not sure why I can experience it. It is very random when it happens and it can last for a few days or a few hours.

 

Anyone else experience this? I wish there was way to keep dark mode all the time.

Me too the same thing. On 31/12/2019 all apps compatible with the dark mode, such as Google, Instragram, Play store were dark. Will they be tests? Hopefully it's stable before it's time to switch my smartphone.

And you didn't select dark mode for those apps correct? They switched themselves and then switched back?

Yes just like this. And there was no option available to enable or disable it, it did it all by itself. I'm really curious to know why.

OK...Just wanted to confirm. I've read a lot about dark mode with these apps, and currently with Instagram and Google Photos, the only way to enable dark mode is to change the Android 10 system wide settings to dark mode, which Moto G5/G5 Plus don't have (unless you've rotted it). It's really confusing as to how random I get to experience dark mode with these two apps. I definitely prefer it and just wish it would stay permanently!
