Just weeks after launch, Google’s Gallery Go gets a dark mode

Well that was quick. Less than a month after Google launched Gallery Go, its offline photo management app, it’s getting a dark mode.

The app, which debuted at the company’s Google for Nigeria roadshow in July, is an offline, lighter and less sophisticated version of Photos.

It’s likely the fastest we’ve ever seen Google slap a darkened interface on one of its apps. Indeed, some that’ve been around for ages — including Gmail, Google Play Music, and the Google app itself — all lack an eye-friendly mode.

That said, it’s not clear when Google will be updating said apps with a dark theme, or if the company really intends to at all.

But it’s a welcome sight to see the firm update apps this swiftly, especially since we’ve lost the likes of Google Trips, Inbox, and YouTube Gaming all this year.

Google notes the dark mode will be available “over the next few days”.
