During the first set of Android 6.0 Marshmallow builds, developers reported a brand new dark UI theme. However, according to a latest report, the final build of Android M, scheduled for Sept. 29 release, will not include the dark theme.
The Android M developer preview version was released back in May with a new dark theme, which can be enabled via the developer options menu. When this option was reported for the first time, many Android fans apparently thought, Google has finally introduced a new theme loved by many. However, the dark UI theme will not make it to the final build of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, according to Phone Arena.
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow developer preview reportedly provided the option to choose between bright and darker shades of color for the UI. To top it off, users were able to make the new version switch between the bright UI theme for the day time and dark theme for the night, Phone Arena reported.
However, Google removed the dark UI theme when it rolled out the second and third Android M developer preview builds. And now, it’s clear that the search giant has permanently axed the option.
Even though, Google has not formally announced the removal of a well-received theme, information ferreted out of Google Issue Tracker saying the theme will not be part of the Android M release. When a user checked with Google on the missing theme via the issue tracker, the reply from the search giant confirms that even though the Android M version of OS will not be featuring this dark theme, the suggestion will be considered for future releases of the operating system.
