Google constantly updates its own application. Not so long ago the messages app and YouTube got the dark theme. A month ago the owners of Pixel and smartphones Android One started to get the update for the Google Phone, which adds support for dark theme. But what about everything else? They should not despair, because the company has released an update for the Google Phone version 25, which is still only available in beta status. In this update, the company implemented a dark theme, but to activate it you will need to produce a number of custom actions.
First we need to install the application itself Google Phone 25. In addition, the smartphone must have Root access. To install the update v25 need to become a part of the beta test on the application page at this link. You can also download APK file.
After that, you need to install a file Manager with supporting Root-access. For example, FX File Explorer or MiXplorer. Then open file Manager, go to the Root section, then go to the following path: /data/data/com.google.android.dialer/shared_prefs and look for a file dialer_phenotype_flags.xml.
Open it and find the line G__enable_dark_mode_settings. Change value=to false for value=true. Then we find the __data_rollout__DarkMode.EnableDarkModeRollout__launched__ and change the value=false for value=true. Save the file, then open Google Phone, go to settings, apps, looking for the section of the display settings (appearance) and activate the dark theme.
At the moment this theme is not officially available to users, so they can deal with a variety of interface issues. Although, of course, this is unlikely.
Google Phone in August of this year with version 23 received Material Design 2.0. This update seriously changed the interface of the application were removed the card from shadows, the interface is more minimalistic and modern.
