Over the past couple of months, Google Pay has undergone a huge transformation, both in terms of looks and functionality. Google has merged the international Pay app with its Indian counterpart (formerly called Tez) following Flutter’s rewrite of the latter and recently even got a new logo. But unlike most other Google services, the new GPay so far lacked a proper dark mode, but it’s finally making its way to the beta version of the app.
Google Pay India showed signs of an impending dark mode with an optimized home screen in September, but the main interface of the app itself has retained its obvious white layout. With the latest beta, GPay has acquired a more complete dark mode implementation that works across the board.
The app settings, however, don’t have a switch to manually activate the mode; it will automatically follow the device theme setting. Google may introduce a manual option in the future, like many of its other apps, but it’s sticking to the automatic mode right now.
The new dark theme is being launched with the beta version of GPay 119.1.4, although it is not yet widely available to subscribers to the beta program via the Play Store. You can grab the app from APK Mirror instead to get the new theme first.
