The takeaway for Google and Android app developers is simple: Use more black and darker colors.

In one piece of data, Google showed how dark mode can use 43% less power at full brightness than "normal mode" in the YouTube app, which uses a lot of white.

During this week's Android Dev Summit, Google told those developers attending that adding a Dark Mode to their apps will result in extreme battery life savings. The reason for this was due to the design guidelines that Google had outlines for Android and apps.

Dark mode saves lives. With OLED screens, each pixel lights up independently, which is why dark mode helps preserve battery life. This is because the individual pixels have less burden on the darker areas of the screen saving the battery life.

As you can see in the chart above, using white at the same brightness levels consumes several times more power than displaying black. Not surprisingly, the Pixel's AMOLED had a 63% lower power consumption in night mode while the iPhone 7's LCD had the same consumption in both modes. YouTube already has a dark mode, and so does Messages.

Google drilled down further into how different colors impacted power usage. Twitter with a dark theme is less blinding than a day theme that's mostly white, especially when you're looking at it in the dark or in places that aren't bright (like bars, restaurants, etc.).

According to Google's new quarterly Android Ecosystem Security Transparency Report, less than 1 percent of Android devices using the Google Play Store are afflicted by harmful apps. Thus, with an AMOLED screen, a black color simply means that none of the red, green or blue pixels are turned on.

However, the app's dark mode was shown to only be using 96mA. The search giant said that they have plans to roll out a Dark Mode for all the Google apps in the future. Google is now urging developers to use dark mode, or at least give users a choice.

For less urgent stuff, the new tools will let the app update in the background, even while it's being used. It's been encouraging developers to adopt the new Material Design guidelines, which provide more freedom than the old version.
