Dark theme and Colour inversion

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


To turn on Dark theme or Colour inversion:

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

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