While dark mode in some apps are available, what many users are looking for is a system-wide implementation of the feature. Google apparently heard their cries of anguish, and promised that the mode is ready to go for the next installment of Android.

For developers, it looks like a nightmare as it would affect every app available on Android and will also make it extremely hard to maintain the materialistic design when the dark mode is switched on.

Google's team updated its tracker to explain that there seemed to be a misunderstanding, and that the feature is not coming after all.

Whether or not it will make the final cut remains to be seen, but based on Google's past releases the developer preview for Android P should be coming soon, which means that we should be able to find out if the feature really has been added to Android.

According to a statement given to Android Police, Google isn't adding a full-on dark mode to Android, but rather a toggle in developer settings to activate "-night UI mode qualifier". The team also informed that the aforementioned qualifier has been a part of Android since Android Froyo and was made globally modifiable since Marshmallow.

While the development team has continued to said otherwise in the past whenever asked about the dark mode for Android, the latest announcement confirmed that it may never receive such a feature owing to technical difficulties.

"If it's any consolation, we will also not be adding Hot Dog Mode (where all UI elements are yellow and red)". Last year, we saw that the 10th anniversary of Android OS was celebrated by Google and Android 8.0 Oreo, the latest version of Android was launched. However, Google still will meet users and will build a limited functionality Dark Mode, available only for developers that will allow them to integrate the dark theme in their apps easily.
