Almost all smartphone apps have the Dark mode. But, what about the app that we use to install other apps. Yes, the Play Store app has released its dark mode in May 2020. The dark mode is very useful when you are using your smartphone at night time. It is no surprise that the Play Store app has a dedicated dark theme after all the Google-made apps have a dark theme of their own.

Use the Dark mode only in the low-light conditions. If you use the dark mode in the morning light or where you get a direct light source, some parts of your smartphone screen can’t be seen properly.
