Google finds Night Mode really helps battery endurance

Women can be charged up to £,7,000 for giving birth

You've tried power banks and even fast chargers to negate its impact, but turns out Google had a trick up its sleeve that they have now revealed.

Right now, the in-app update API is being tested through the Android Google Chrome app and with select partnered developers, but Google plans to expand that early access program in the near future.

"But this isn't just about that". More interesting was the fact that different colors cause different amounts of power usage, with white and then blue accounting for the biggest draw. That not only saves battery life, it means that the contrast is sharper when reading text on a black background with an AMOLED screen. 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. This makes sense, since OLED displays feature individual pixels that barely do any work on dark areas of the screen.

Are you a techie who knows how to write?

Google also acknowledged that its Material Design initiative uses white as a primary color. Heres a comparison done with the first Google Pixel and the iPhone 7.

The other option is what Google is calling a flexible update. The release today isn't actually a full new app release, it's a sort of rebranding. But you won't really find true dark modes for any of them. At 100% brightness, the battery consumes 60% less battery power using Dark Mode.

Over 20 child advocacy groups have sent a letter to the FTC regarding advertising in kids apps.

Google also notes on its blog that the PHA rate continues to steadily decline on phones that have the newer Android version installed.

An EU ruling against Google could pave the way to improve Android phones for consumers, says the Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager.
