Google's File Go Storage Being Rebranded for Its 30 Million Users

While black uses the least power and white uses the most, Google found that blue used 25 percent more power than green or red.

Google recently held its Android Dev Summit in Mountain View where it discussed other tricks that can be employed to enhance smartphone life per charge. Especially with devices that sport an OLED display, the dark theme has been known to reduce stress on the battery life.

Google announced today that their Android Files Go storage app is being rebranded to the new name of Files by Google and that in less than a year, they have 30 million monthly users all over the world. When the video was paused, dark mode saved 60 percent.

Generally, when you increase the screen's brightness, it affects the battery life of the device. The tech giant displayed several slides showing how different colours have different power-drawing capacities and compared them. We changed from Holo, which is a nice dark theme, to a white theme instead.

In 2014, the company began pushing its Material Design style guidelines, which are meant to give Android apps a modern, consistent look across devices, and make the best possible use of available space. That helps save battery life, rather significantly on an OLED panel, because it is lighting up those pixels individually, so the less pixels you need to light up, the less power is being used.

Tap on the toggle for "Dark theme" to enable it.

Additionally, developers can now full-screen messages asking the user to update the app immediately, unless they're prevented by a metered connection or the battery is too low.

However, the app's dark mode was shown to only be using 96mA.

Google showed the difference Dark Mode makes in its YouTube app. One hopes that the transparency of its reporting will extend more fulsomely to China in the future, since almost 1 in 5 people on Earth call it home. Google routinely bans sketchy apps from its store, but they remain available via sideloading, and their makers don't stop advertising the product just because it's unavailable from the approved channels.
