While many of Google's apps are heavy on white, some apps like YouTube do feature dark mode and as demonstrated, its use can significantly cut the amount power a display is using.

Like the LCD panels, the AMOLED displays do not use a backlight and a black screen does not require Red, Green or Blue pixels which intern saves battery life.

As seen in the first example: Night Mode can be a big help to reduce power consumption on devices with OLED displays but isnt as likely to have such a positive effect with LCD displays since all the pixels on an LCD panel are lit from the same source, meanwhile, OLED panels pixels are self-illuminated.

"Last December, Google launched Files Go: an app to free up space on mobile phones, find files faster and share them with others easily and quickly-even without an internet connection", states Google's announcement."Files Go was built to solve file and storage management problems for the next generation of smartphone users in countries such as India, Brazil and Nigeria".

At full brightness on a Pixel, YouTube in dark mode used 43 percent less power than normal. Along with users, App developers will also benefit from the latest In-app updates API.
