"As you unfold, the app seamlessly transfers to the bigger screen without missing a beat", Stephanie Cuthbertson, director of product management said in a blog post. On Google Maps, even at full brightness, using night mode can save about 30 percent of the battery.

Black on OLED screens is known to use less power because the LEDs that make up each pixel are off, whereas displaying white means the LEDs need to shine and consume power. But battery life is never enough, especially as the battery degrades over time. To address this, we're launching an In-app Updates API.

Google went on to acknowledge the prevalence of white in its apps and the way it pushes devs to use it, but there could be a method to its madness. Heres a comparison done with the first Google Pixel and the iPhone 7. Google re-iterated that point during its Android Dev Summit and confirmed that dark mode puts significantly less strain on the battery than anything else, reported SlashGear. You may have to manually enable Dark Mode on different applications.

Google demonstrated how dark mode minimizes battery drain from the screen. Now the search company has rebranded the app to be called 'Files by Google, ' as well as revamped the platform's user interface. This can save up to 43% battery usage during video playback and 60% when paused (with the phone set to 100% brightness).

Along with the new updates API, Google official rolled out support for foldable devices on the eve of celebrating ten-years of Android.

Google is giving developers tools to push users into updating their apps.

It's a great thing for Google to recognize this fact.

All this while you have been looking for the magic that increases the battery life of your phone.

Today, we're rebranding the app to Files by Google.
