Dark mode is not working no matter what in my iOS Google apps 0 Recommended Answers 61 Replies 222 Upvotes

Hi everyone !! So I'm aware that some of the iOS Google apps like Gmail and Calendar now have dark mode. However, when I use these apps, despite the dark mode being turned on on my phone, these apps are still in light mode. Furthermore, when I go into settings, I can't find the 'theme' option anywhere. 

I've tried:
- updating the apps
- updating to the latest iOS, iOS 13.3
- restarting my phone
- signing out and back in
Any help / information would be appreciated!! Thank you :))

I have the same problem. Talked with One support and they said to contact gmail support via "send feedback". Did not receive any response till now.

Same issue for me. Dark mode was working really nicely for my Gmail app v6.0.191117 on IPhone and iPad, both with latest iOS versions. But last night I removed a work account (changed jobs) and now dark mode has disappeared, despite my personal gmail account still being attached. The themes section of settings is no longer visible.

I am so used to dark mode now I would love to get this back ASAP.

As for others users, at the moment still no dark mode option in gmail with ios13 on iphone X.
Already tried every possibile solution (update gmail app to last version, update ios, delete and reinstall gmail app or change account, turning off/on dark mode on ios ) but still no option active!
Quite frustrating and not understandable situation

I had exactly the same problem as everyone else here and tried almost everything from removing the app to switch between dark mode and regular theme in iOS to no avail. I use the Gmail app with a personal account and an enterprise GSuite account. The last thing I tried was removing the personal account from the app and voila, dark mode was enabled! I just had to re-enable the personal account again and it stayed dark. I hope this helps someone!

Guysss I found the solution!!! I had the same problem on my ipad, no theme option, searched and tried removing accounts, uninstalling and reinstalling apps, nothing worked. Then it occurred to me that Google says it’s slowly rolling out the dark theme, and I thought new accounts should always have it. So if you have a new account just created on the app, it should work!

And it did!!!! Yay lol why does google put us through this.

What I did:
1 - create a new gmail account
2 - in your browser, log in with the new account and make sure to choose dark mode as the theme
3 - now go to the gmail app, log in with the new account (make sure you have dark mode turned on your ipad first)
4 - and voila! Dark mode is automatically on!

I hope this works for everyone, thought I should share this to relieve everyone’s stress lol
