Dark theme and Color inversion

You can change your display to a dark background with either Dark theme or Color inversion.


To turn on Dark theme or Color inversion:

  1. Open your device's Settings app Settings app.
  2. Tap Accessibility.
  3. Under Display, turn on Dark theme or Color inversion
    • Dark theme applies to the Android system UI and apps running on your device. Colors don't change in media, such as videos.
    • Color inversion exchanges color values. For example, black text on a white screen becomes white text on a black screen. Color inversion also applies to media, and there can be issues with color quality or legibility.  

If you're using Android 9 or earlier: You can use only one of these settings at a time. For example, if you turn on Dark theme, Color inversion automatically turns off.
